Rig Inspections

An RSB technician will carry out a full visual inspection of the mast, boom and associated hardware. A full report detailing any problems and the work necessary to rectify these issues will be generated. The rig log will be updated and a copy of all works carried out will be supplied to the boat and sent to the mast manufacturer if necessary.

Annual inspections

The mast is de-jacked to unload the rods and where possible all rod heads and fittings are cleaned and re-lubricated. The mast is re-jacked and any necessary tuning carried out. A full report is prepared for the boat and if necessary copied to the mast manufacturer.
