 Rigging - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rigging (Anglo-Saxon wrigan or wrihan, to clothe) denotes a ship's apparatus of spars (including both masts and yards), sails and cordage, by which the force of the wind is used to move the hull against the resistance, and with the support, of the water.
Rigging also includes a ship's davits, the straight or curved pieces of wood or metal that hold boats carried along the bulwarks.
The basis of all rigging is the mast, whether it be composed of one or of many pieces of wood or metal.
