Rigger's Tool Kit
Don’t go up without ‘emMark McCloskey’s been climbing masts and hanging off spars since he was old enough to chew. As the head rigger of the Marblehead Trading Company, Front Street Yard, he spends more time perched on mastheads than most seagulls ‘round here. Usually gets a crane ride to the top, but I’ve seen ‘em in frustration grab hold of a down-haul line and shimmy right straight up the side of a 50 ft. mast without breathin’ hard. You don’t want to be within earshot when he gets to the top of that mast and realizes Oggie, the boatyard pooch, has made off with one of his riggin’ tools.
All the essentials arranged nice like sardines in a full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather sheath. Flat-head screwdriver, stainless steel knife, needle-nose Vise-Grip pliers; combination marlin spike and shackle buster.
Ladies don’t let your men up the mast, or around the house on Saturday mornings without it.
