Rigging Dulcinea - March 2017
The RopeTek rigging business was started 15 years ago by John and Faye Foulds and purchased by Adam Bonham-Carter 2 years ago. They are known as the local “go to” professionals for all your yacht rigging requirements.
The RopeTek van is the mobile workshop with a full complement of tools including a new Wire-Teknik hydraulic roll swager (only Lloyds approved machine of its type), Loos professional wire tension gauges, crimping, swaging, straightening, and measurement tools. They also carry a good selection of fittings and rope cordage – both conventional yacht braid and hi-modulus Dyneema products.
Adam, supported by his partner Kim Tait, deliver the company mission to provide quality professional service and always strive to satisfy their client’s needs. “The job is not done until the client is happy”. We are always available to respond to boatie’s needs and provide great ongoing after-care.
John Foulds, the journeyman rigger of 30 plus years and well-known founder of the business, also continues to work with RopeTek on a part time basis and is called upon when his experience is needed.
