Sandpoint Grapnel


The Sandpoint Grapnel is manufactured from high strength structured steel. The sizes normally used are 115kgs, 180kgs and 250kgs and this will depend on penetration requirements.

They are ideal for use on sandy or easily disturbed seabeds where little resistance will be experienced, and are particularly good where the cable has become self-buried to a small degree. They can also be added at the rear of the grapnel train for extra weight and penetration.
