Title: robbe Atlantis s hook reqd urgent
Post by: Klunk on September 01, 2014, 07:33:24 AM
HELP!!!!!
Got my robbe Atlantis out today to go to the lake, started assembling lakeside to find the front s hook missing from the front sail. I need to buy a new s hook, I have the swivel joint still attached to the jib, just needing the hook to attach to the deck. very urgent as this is the boat I want to take to Black Park this weekend!!

Can't you make one from steel wire?  or have a look in a fishing tackle shop, they are a good source of suitable links. Used a few on my Racing Sparrow yacht.

Hi Klunk


If you look in the fishing tackle for Gemini links, or similar, the big ones are rated to several hundred pounds braking strain.

HMS ANTRIM/Frank.
Many thanks for the ss hook you made. just been out and fitted it to the Atlantis. She looks better now. The orginal Robbe ones are brass. I'll take a pic of her on Sunday in full sail and post a pic for you to see!!
Again much appreciated
