Hook Marine Ltd is a Scottish company which is dedicated to safety in the marine industries. The company specialises in the provision of safety equipment for use when lifting or hauling at sea, and the Kranskan™ and SeaWise® products shown on this web site are specially designed to reduce the risks associated with working in a hostile and hazardous marine environment.
Small vessels, especially those in the fishing industry, are the most vulnerable, and accident statistics show that fishing is the most dangerous industry of all in many countries. The loss of life resulting from accidents at sea is deeply felt in coastal communities, as can be seen from the many fishermen’s memorials in coastal locations – the memorial shown below being a good example.
There are many factors which are essential for safety at sea, including good vessel design, regular maintenance and first class seamanship. Our products are in no way to be considered as replacements for these essentials; rather we are looking to advance and enhance the finest skills which the naval architect, the marine engineer and the seafarer can bring to their craft.
