Product Description

Grab lines and fend off easily with this floating boat hook. It features anodized aluminum tubing that telescopes quickly and twist-locks securely. Glass-filled nylon heads are curved to aid in line retrieval and the soft tips prevent scratches. The Shorty model telescopes from 3' to 7' and is designed for smaller boats that do not have a place to stow longer boat hooks. Spare yellow tips sold separately (Model 11869088)

This is the strongest boat hook I have ever seen and exceeds those that I have let go with other boats that I have sold. It is very strong when fully extended. Recently I used it fully extended to reach a swimmer in trouble and it was rigid as needed.

Have used boat hooks for 50 years and the ONLY reliabe form is solid construction. This is most unwieldly to store, therefore I keep purchasing these collapsible forms, and after a while the friction between cylinders becomes faulty and it then is only good for pulling the boat toward something. Pushing is useless, or dangerous as the pole will collapse. Will recommend with conditions.

    Comments about Floating & Telescoping Boat Hooks:

    Went from a 15" to a 23" jet boat. Jets are hard to maneuver at low speeds in tighter quarters. Not with the boat hook. Pulls you in nice and tight against your fenders with no drama at all!

          The telescoping boat hook was what we were looking for. The fact that it floats was the deal maker. Thank you.
