That moment you realize… the Bay Area’s best equipped rig shop is also your favorite boat yard. Mind = blown.
KKMI can confidently say that we have the best equipped rig shop on the Bay. It’s true! We have all the equipment, all the inventory, all the safety protocols, and all the know-how to care for the backbone of your sailboat’s performance… And we can do this while you’re getting your bottom painted, your thru hulls checked, or your engine serviced at your favorite boat yard!

KKMI is able to make that definitive statement because in addition to having all the ingredients for a first class rig shop, we are also uniquely positioned to take a holistic approach to maintenance of your boat. While most other rigging enterprises only focus on your rig, KKMI focuses on the big picture. We are constantly looking for ways to improve the safety and performance of your boat. So not only do we fix the symptom, but we also solve the problem.

The best part of our rig shop is our highly experienced team, led by Barrett Linn. Barrett has been splicing lines since the age of 12 and sailing since high school. He joined the maritime industry in 1995 as the maintenance manager at a popular Bay Area sailing school and then moved on to manage the rigging department at another boat yard. Barrett has been with KKMI for nearly a decade and his team is ready to help you with your rigging needs.
