Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Rigging

Hello Heinz,

I was 5 months in Panama and never heard of a rigger in the country.

However, the winds are lighter in the Pacific and if your rig was checked by a good rigger in the recent past, you’ll be ok.

If you need a GREAT one in Tahiti, look for Benoit Parnaudeau.  He used to rig Isabelle Autissier’s boat plus he skippered a Volvo 60 in the RTW solo event a few years back.

Good luck,

I believe there is only one rigger on the pacific side. A friend on a 55 would not give him a great review. John. john@... would be good to contact. 

I hope you guys are well!!

Hallo all


I hope everyone survived the hurricane well.

my Quetzal is currently in Shelter Bay Marina in Panama on the dry one. 

Does anyone know a good Rigger in panama? 

I would like to have my rig checked before I go on to the Pacific. 

I would be grateful for an answer.
