I developed these for one of my customers that has ended up with LD marine aluminum outriggers and mounts after destroying all the other normal alternatives like Taco, rupp and Lee. I am being told that my carbon fiber 20 ft rigger is at least 1/5 the weight and just as stiff if not stiffer then the 19 ft aluminum LDs . They also very easily retract to 6 ft 4 inches. No springs or holes to line up. They will only fit the LD marine outrigger holder. Price $1200. My cel is 609-335-2149 for immediate shipment. Jay.

Sometimes it sucks to be successful. I have had No time left

to finnish my own boat. I am moving very close to 50 sets of riggers since the first set delivered the second week of february. That first set was supposed to be for my boat and any others if someone wanted one was going to pay for mine just partially. That is not how it happened. Then my good friend that I fish with on his 34 sea vee, He is in the same situation. Him and his wife own the rights to the rodeo they put on in Atlantic city for the past 2 years. They just opened the second wine and cigar store in a second casino and they have the biggest established flower business around> He can't find time to fish either. I keep thinking it will slow down but, I do not think so? Or that the other outrigger companies will get smarter and buy me so I have time to fish???? I don't think so?

Ya know Bly, if you did happen to finish the 233 with the cabon fiber stick, techincally you would be the only greenstick manufacture on the east coast, the game is getting big now, as for outrigger companies, what you need to look into is, whats the cost for them to produce tube aluminum riggers vs having you layup a set, and potentially looking into the tooling to mass manufacture it. Then you should find your answer

I have no desire to build any outriggers in aluminum. I am beginning to prototype a

T top outrigger holder out of a combination carbon fiber and ceramic. No aluminum because of the corrosion factor. The only problem is that a lot of ceramic tubes are bulked up with an aluminum by product that I do not want to use in a marine environment. As far as the green stick, I can deliver a retractable 30+ ft green stick tomorrow. All I have to do is ad the last 3 sections of my center rigger to the tuna rigger above. If more then 30 ft is needed that could be done easy with a taller base tube or two of the next bigger diameter. It would be made based from the tuna rigger above. All tis will be much more rigid then the fiberglass green sticks and much more lighter. Way way way lighter. The fiberglass version I built on the formula was too flexible. I just do not see that great of a demand for the green stick. I fish on a friends boat with one in NC and it is a lot of work. Most of the time we only use it as a last resort when trawling or jigging does not work for blue fin. It is a whole lot easier to tow big spreader bars from the riggers I have above.

I think you missed my point with the aluminum riggers. Just curious on your riggers, how much pressure can be put on them untill it breaks ? And do they need a wire suspension setup ?

No stays or wire suspension needed. It is the same technology as aircraft wings today

I do not think there are many if any wings built with wire suspensions. But carbon takes us one giant step ahead in both weight and stiffness. The problem is expense and when it does fail it is with a bang because of all the non kinetic energy built up from no flex or movement. Since I do not need to worry about lift to weight like in a plane wing. I try to have more then enough compressive strength and I am still way lighter then any comparable aluminum alternative. and of course the longitudinal strength is way above aluminum. I have mocked up a 30 ft green stick from carbon fiber and No wire suspension needed. It will not bend near as much as a fiberglass green stick. That is the beauty of carbon over fiberglass. I think that a breakaway 100 or even 200lb connection is all that is needed to keep the my mostly black,green stick from snapping. I have witnessed my normal 20 ft carbon riggers pulling spreader bars that had outrigger clips way too tight and not release. They were pulling the outrigger holder down to a point of breaking the holder? The boat owners all said that their old aluminum riggers got bent this way???? that is why they bought mine. I am begging them to get better out rigger clips before they break mine. Yes they are not indestructible.

Not with cable anymore, but the do use spars and ribs. Anywhoot, How much modification do you think they need to get into lee bases ?

My normal 20 ft carbon fiber retractable riggers fit the Lee Sidewinder bases with the AT3916.0009 Sleeves that Lee has to also put on their own poles.

Very In ter esting? My heavy duty tuna rigger will fit it and that is also designed

I think i got jr's

I have to check

to fit the LD marine holder. A coincidence? they also have sleeves to make my and most other outrigger manufacturers 1 1/2 inch fit it also. One phone call and I now have a second avenue or holder to market my tuna rigger.
