Hall Spars & Rigging has
more than 30 years experience
building the world’s most
innovative high-performance spars
and rigging. No one is better
equipped to provide expert service.
technician is a factory-trained
Hall employee. Technicians from
our international service team
will travel to your boat to complete
most service jobs. Even if your
spar is not a Hall spar, you can
still get great Hall service.
From annual inspections to on-site
regatta repairs, we are here to
provide the skilled service to
help you maintain the best performance.
We can perform most service work
on board your boat or at a marina.
Here is a summary of our mobile
A Hall technician prepares the
mast for stepping, and is present
at the stepping to assist and
ensure it is done to our satisfaction.
Once the mast is in place, we
connect all rigging and center
the mast in the boat.
Always include a mast inspection
in your preparation for an extended
cruise. A Hall expert can locate
and fix small problems before
they become big ones.
- If the mast is out of the
boat, the technician looks for
cracks in high-stress areas
and wear spots from halyards.
High stress areas are located
around standing rigging attachments,
sheave boxes, spreader bases
and roots, and masthead. The
inspection can include an ultrasound
or a rigging dye test if needed.
- If the mast is stepped, the
technician goes up the mast
and does a visual inspection.
Inspecting a stepped mast cannot
be as thorough as checking an
unstepped mast, but it is still
a good way to find and address
Begin (or end) your season with
a thorough inspection of the rigging.
We visually inspect all running
and standing rigging.
If the mast is unstepped, we
disassemble and clean many parts
of the rig. We inspect all rigging
termination points visually, and
if we suspect problems, we may
perform further testing (such
as dye testing). We remove sheave
pins and sheaves for inspection,
we remove spreaders to inspect
spreader bars and roots, and we
inspect all gooseneck fittings.
Electrical wiring is inspected
for chafe. We also check all light
fittings, blocks, cars, tracks,
clutches, and any other hardware.
If the mast is stepped, a technician
goes up the mast and visually
inspects the standing rigging
(not including the ends), running
rigging, and hardware.
We can add a complete cleaning
of all rigging ends, pins, and
cars, and we recommended this
especially if the mast is going
into off-season storage. Performing
the inspection and cleaning at
the beginning of storage allows
time for any needed repairs.
Only a professional should make
any change to a carbon spar. Call
us if you decide to add a halyard,
radar bracket, or any hardware
to your mast.
Dock Tune/Sail Tune
This service is available for
any mast – new or old.
At the dock, we ensure that the
mast is tuned properly and (if
applicable) that the jack pressure
is up to specifications.
Under sail, we observe the tune
of the rig under normal conditions
and adjust accordingly.
Our technicians are fully trained
in furling system installation
and repair, winch service, hardware
installation, lifeline inspection
and replacement, and boom vang
