When Will Your Order Ship?
APS will contact you with within one business day with a day-definite shipping date for your rigging order. All rigging orders are processed on a first come, first served basis and our shipping dates are determined by the current volume of orders in our Rigging Department. Please be aware that at the peak of our season (May - August), rigging times may exceed three business days.

Please Note: Due to the varying line lengths for Thistle sheets, we only make recommendations for type of line and diameter, and leave the length to you! All line is sold by the foot, and the ends are burned.
