Help! Tack Hook Pic


Dave Kall
(Member)

I'm looking for the Tack hook pic that someone had posted here. I don't have one and am going to have one made for our boat. Our sparmaker was the Superspar (I think) and I contacted Lefiell and they never got back to me. (Guess I wasn't going to spend enough money even though I bought one of their spars years ago). So if anyone has some pics of their tack hooks and can either post them or pm them to me I would sincerely apprciate it. Cheaper is we have a pic to work from then trying to get it all figured out!

Talk to Rodney at LeFiell...he helped me with my mast. I'm sure they would sell you one, its got to be less expensive than having one fabricated

G,
I tried that route. Never received a reply even after I talked to him / them and sent them the measurements.

I too think it would be cheaper than having one fabricated; but, then again, at least the fabricator is right here and I can walk over and talk to him.

Dave, I have seen commercially available ones made from 1/4" SS rod, with a loop formed at one end to bolt through a gooseneck fitting. I am away from my office now, but will check on it on Monday when I am back in So Cal.

I'll take a picture of mine tomorrow

Thanks,
I've printed them out. Our SS guys are showing up this am. I have a couple of others I'll be discussing with them.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
