maintenance. It is important to protect your shaft and props
with protective Zinc anodes, and that by cleaning your hull and reducing
drag you improve speed and fuel efficiency.

This is Keith Stone and Ray Hines, and we are riggers
from Anacortes, WA. This is our 14th year in conjunction with the
William H. Seward Yacht Club to come to Seward and work on your
beloved sailboats. This year we will be in town May 12 - 22nd.
We are scheduling work now as we speak. Those of you
who have come to know us over the years know that we have done a wide
variety of quality work on the fleet there in Seward and we would
like to continue this tradition.
We do rig tuning, install furlers, do rig inspections,
any repairs or upgrades you may need, install shrouds, fabricate
lifelines, install running rigging, just about anything you may
need..we'll even help you bend on your sails after a long, dark
winter. No job too big or too small!
Note: Those of you who need parts built like shrouds
or lifelines need to step in soon, with concise measurements, in time
for me to get stuff fabricated and sent ahead.
Thanks to all our Seward friends and we hope to hear
