Clean Hands and Decks

With a connected tow rope, the mooring line can be transferred at a lower position, under the boat gunwale without any fear of it touching the boat’s fenders.

Mud and shells attached to the mooring line will fall into the water instead of onto the deck. It also protects the crew’s hands and provides a much smoother and speedy mooring experience.

USER EXPERIENCE

Transfer Up to 3-times Faster

The mooring speed is particularly crucial in the case of windy conditions, which can cause drifting, possible collisions, hand injuries – or at the very least – a lot of stress. For that reason the GHOOK design is now providing the optimal speed and strength performance. Special attention went into minimizing the friction caused by overgrown ropes. Algae and shells do not present an obstacle to it. Compared to the traditional mooring it accelerates the mooring process by up to 3 times.

GHOOK Application

The GHOOK as it is

You can use the GHOOK by directly holding onto its ergonomic handle. Using it without a rope extension is only suitable for smaller vessels.

The GHOOK with a rope extension

You can tie a rope extension to the GHOOK and enable the transfer of a mooring line under the gunwale while also avoiding fenders.

The GHOOK using a swivel at the bow

You can use the GHOOK even when nobody can assist you. Just set a rope along the vessel through a swivel at the bow and tie it to GHOOK.

GHOOK Use
