Vinyl Rigging Tape

Vinyl Rigging Tape From securing ring dings and pins to holding blistered hands together for one more race, just about anyone who ever sails uses this stuff by the mile. Economy or Standard we offer two grades of this UL listed, white electrical, er...rigging tape. Both are 7mm thick, 3/4 of an inch wide and 66 feet long in white. So, why do we offer both?

The Economy has a slightly less agressive adhesive and a little less stretch, but a really attractive price. If you travel a lot with your boat burning through roll after roll every weekend when you rig and de-rig your boat this is perfect for you.

The Standard offers a bit more agressive adhesive on a more durable vinyl for improved holding power and stretch. It even comes with a handy dandy carrying case. This is the stuff to use if you are a set it and forget it type sailor who steps their rig once and year and rarely re-tapes things.
