    Default Rigger to climb mast Medway area

    Hi,
    My boats based on the Medway by Upnor Sailing Club. Is there anywhere I can take my 26ft sail boat as I need a new halyard sent down mast, I would do myself but to be honest Iím slightly scared of heights and watching videos I donít think my nerves would take it.
    Any assistance would be highly appreciated

    We recently replaced a sheave box on a Sigma over at Gillingham marina ,using the cherry picker in the lock to get the height .Gillingham charged us £60 for use of lock and hoist .

    Any rigger should be able to manage working at the top of a mast; it should be a regular thing for them.
