it depends who you are trying it on and wich graple you have equiped

Make sure you click the opposing ship and the yellow icon appears above the ship.
then run into them (not necessarily using ram... but you can)... actually hitting them will stop you from sailing.
then click the grapple icon to grapple.
if you fail to grapple - read what it says in white chat

Also what is your grapple level?
What level ship are you trying to grapple?
and what type (name and level) of grapple are you trying to use.

Read the grapple guide to see if u have the right kind.

protection net makes grapples miss a LOT more than it should (60% maximum). even with flame grappling hooks while using powerful cast(3) i always miss when someone is using this stunt.

other than that, make sure you have a grappling hook equipped, and not a mechanical hook. f01

Be sure the ship you attempt grapple on is a ship type or npc that even allows it .

not really related but protection net becomes useless.. for example i dont use anything under cannon graple for pvp

I'm doing the quest "Crete Iron Hand Ship". I allways get the "Failed to Hook" message :S..

Location: Crete battlefield

Thanks for the help!

I created a new account and grappling is working now.
The Char i used was very old (several years)

well grapple should have still worked
at lvl 2 grapple the odds are kinda low, but u should still get a hook like 10% of the time, idk
