The Great Hawk is a scaled up version of the
original Hawk. It is designed for Cruising and Racing Yachts up to 20m.
The Great Hawk Vane arm is made from the
same super tough nylon and the Reference Arms are made of glassed filled
nylon for ultimate rigidity and UV Protection. The precision balanced
vane arm and Hawks “V” Jewel bearing surface gives instant response to
shifts and gusts with minimal inertia.
The Reference Arms can be preset at 55, 60
or 65 degrees or any angle you prefer and can be used for either upwind
or downwind angles.
The 5mm aluminium support rod is strong
enough to take normal wear and tear, but can be bent straight should it
be knocked while the mast is being stepped or unstepped.
The Great Hawk is easily removed from its
mounting bracket with one screw and the mast bracket can be mounted
vertically or horizontally. In addition, the Great Hawk can be bolted
down to any pre-drilled 8mm holes in the mast head crane using the
supplied adaptor with nut and bolt.
