Hello Juan,

This was installed by the previous owner and I personally never used it, but I would assume that you need the hook to prevent the bow spirit to go up.

Unfortunately I can not take picture as my vessel was lost last year during Hurricane irma. Therefore, if you look on the following link (which relate to the staysail) and scroll down to the 8 and 9 pictures, then you can see how the hook was secured from the inside.

Hi Alexandre,



Many thanks for all those pictures.

Do you always need a hook ?

Do you how the hook is attached to the boat inside?

Can you make a picture?



I have seen a à picture of a bowsprit which was done in
France, it does not seems to need a hook... but I believe if
it is safer to put it.



Many thanks in advance.
