Revised and updated—the only book you need on sailboat rigging and marlinspike arts

The Complete Rigger’s Apprentice, Second Edition offers today’s marine professionals a complete, up-to-date resource on today’s rigging best practices and traditions. This expanded edition features new material on multihull rig design, how to make and use soft-shackles, and the latest information on Sta-Lok (mechanical) terminals. In addition to sharing traditional rigging methods, new techniques are taught here, for the first time, including how to work with today’s high-modulus fibers for both running and standing rigging.

Continuing its tradition, this book helps you gain satisfaction and hard-cash savings from stepping your own masts, inspecting and maintaining your own rigs, and turning your own tail splices and wire eye splices. Easy-to-understand explanations demonstrate how to make hundreds of pieces of handmade gear, which saves you hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of dollars.
