Why Colligo Marine?

James first saw Colligo Marine products on social media a few years ago. Initially, he was impressed with how John Franta grew his business organically. In other words, truly taking his personal time to respond to rigging questions in a non-demeaning, educational way.

Colligo Marine products are essential because Stainless Steel wires and connectors are a problem. They fail and the consequence is more than problematic. Burwick explained how he started taking Stainless Steel Shackles off his 42 foot alloy boat, Nymaba, in the 90s. "I started using sewn nylon webbing material and strong line. I am also a professional mountain guide, so I understand forces and breaking strengths of knots. I then did 26,000 nm in the Southern Ocean on a vessel with full composite rigging, no turnbuckles and only 2 SS shackles," stated Burwick.

He also mentioned that he saw "a continuous flow of super smart products that have been missing in the industry for a very long time." He goes on to explain that Colligo Marine offers solutions that are safe, simple, strong, and elegantly designed.
