- "Does your ship have a Salvage Arm? You can make a fortune by recovering lost treasure from the bottom of the sea! Gotta get a Salvage Arm, though. I bet old Eddo on that southern isle can help."
- — Mercay Island villager
The Salvage Arm is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. This add-on to the S.S. Linebeck allows Link to salvage chests from the bottom of the sea. The price Link pays to buy the Salvage Arm from Eddo on Cannon Island is determined by how loudly Link yells for it, though finger snapping and blowing can also earn a low price. Prices range from 200 to 1,000 Rupees.
The Salvage Arm is needed to salvage the Sun Key. While salvaging, if the Salvage Arm hits an Octomine or a rock, it loses one Diamond, which indicate the Salvage Arm's health in the same manner as Link's Hearts. After all available Diamonds are depleted, the Salvage Arm will be rendered useless and must be taken back to the Shipyard on Mercay Island for repairs. If the Salvage Arm is damaged to any degree, it may be repaired for a small fee of 20 or 50 Rupees, the amount dependent on the damage. However, if completely damaged, repairs cost 100 Rupees.
The Salvage Arm is used to hold large fish, such as the Rusty Swordfish, in cutscenes when Link fishes them up; however, it is not actually required to own the Salvage Arm in order to catch these fish, and catching them before acquiring the Arm does not alter the cutscene at all.
