Cutler Marine Engineering

Who's based at Thornham Marina?

Barry’s Reefing and Rigging services was created 5 years ago, and has been based here at Thornham Marina for 4 years. Barry has over 20 years’ experience in the industry and has previously worked with Rotostay giving him a great knowledge of the manufacturing and fitting. 

Barry is able to offer a full rigging service which includes rig checks, new rigging, running and standing rigging, replacement guard wires, and the supplying, fitting and servicing of most furling systems. 

He also provides a good selection of ropes that can be purchased for the cheapest prices in the area. Splicing is also offered. 

With the winter fast upon us Barry has put together a few tips to help Boat Owners 
1. Check all spilt pins are opened. Place your halyards fore and aft to stop them chaffing on the mast during high winds. 
2. Cover your boom end with a bag to prevent birds from nesting in your boom. 

For boat owners currently at the Marina, Barry is offering a 10% discount on all services. 

If you are at Thornham Marina and your mast is down, Barry can provide a full rig check. If further work is needed as a result of the rig check and the work is carried out by Barry, he will deduct the cost of the rig check from your final invoice. 

Call Barry today on 07970 772 686 or email barry.b.j.locke@btinternet.com to receive your quotation before the Easter rush!
