Thistle 1040 - Rigging the boat

By Thistle1040 - Posted on 23 June 2012

Thistle rigging

Does that look like more than $1000 of hardware? Given what it costs to rig a Thistle today vs. the last time I did this ten years ago, I should be investing in blocks and cleats. Forget gold and stocks!

I'm keeping things pretty simple but estimate that it will take more than $1500 to get this boat sailing. And that's with a sizable discount off of retail.

All of the woodwork on the boat is finished. I'm doing some final varnishing (will this ever end?) and should have all the rigging installed this week. I'm not going to schedule a launch party though until I have the rudder hung and CB finished. My ultimate deadline is still Districts that are now just two weeks away.

Best Marine Epoxy

My favorite epoxy? Progressive Basic No-Blush Epoxy
