R & W Traditional Rigging and Outfitting

R & W is a family owned and operated distributor of rope and cordage. Started in 1985 as a “one man” operation out of the trunk of a hand-me-down car, we’ve grown into one of the most diverse stocking warehouses in the industry.

We’ve got rope - whether it’s small 50 lb test braided line for ice fishing, brightly colored rope for trying your hand at tying a rope halter or a fancy knot, a safety line for a school’s challenge course, or a full set of custom spliced docklines, chances are we have it and have it in stock.

We know rope – both the technical side of how it’s made and the application side of how its used, and enjoy helping you find just the right product for your needs. And we sell our rope at some of the best prices you’ll find anywhere. QUALITY, VALUE, & SERVICE - it’s what we expect and it’s what you can expect from us.

Distributors of:
• Davey & Co. Marine Hardware
• Meissner Winches,
• Ording Wooden Blocks and Rope of all descriptions.

Choose the best gear from the age of classic yachting and working sail.
