How we climb

Climbing view of Provincetown mooring field

We climb using modern rope-access equipment, meaning no bosun's chair, and no assistance required from deck. With no one tending a winch below, we save time while increasing safety. We climb on the vessel's existing halyards, which may require replacement before we can climb.Every vessel presents unique climbing obstacles, contact us for a consultation.

about us

Rouse Rigging is a fully insured and independent mobile marine service, solely owned and operated by Samuel Rouse, a Provincetown resident. Our mission is to provide safe and standards-compliant marine services that will ensure maximum reliability for your equipment.Sam's involvement in the industry started before he left high school- buying a 32' sailboat with a few fellow Eagle Scouts and living aboard. This laid the foundation for Sam's extensive experience, which encompasses work across a diverse number of vessels, ranging from the world's largest oceangoing wooden Viking ship to modern block IV nuclear submarines.Sam started as a deckhand in the tall ship industry, working on domestic and international vessels such as the Draken Harald Hårfagre, Kalmar Nyckel, East Indiaman Götheborg, and the Oliver Hazard Perry. Sam currently holds a 50-ton master's license.Throughout his career, he has lived aboard a variety of boats. Over a few years, from 2021-2023, Sam singlehanded his 28' Pearson Triton from New England to the Caribbean and back again following an extensive refit project.Sam has experience with General Dynamics Electric Boat, the Navy's largest shipbuilding contractor. As a shipfitter, he was a steelworker on a team responsible for assembling large integral ballast tanks. Often working with the Quality Assurance department, he gained experience in magnetic particle and visual inspection methods on vital submarine welds.Rouse Rigging was originally founded as a mast climbing service in Oriental, NC, but now performs a far wider variety of marine systems services. Sam moved to Provincetown in 2022, bringing the business with him. He now lives in Provincetown year-round.As an experienced offshore single-hander, Sam's attention to detail is a core value of our service. Sam's dedication to safety and standards compliance above all allows his clients to sail confidently, wherever their journeys take them.
