          Comments about Floating & Telescoping Shorty Boat Hook:

          I bought this to grab my crab lines, but also use it to grab on the dock or push off. Works very well. A lot stronger than I thought it would be. I have another one longer *bought some where else* but it is not as stout as this one.

          Very good product.

              Comments about Floating & Telescoping Shorty Boat Hook:

              Compact enough for easy storage, yet extends long enough to be useful for numerous purposes. It's easy to adjust, it's surprisingly light weight, and has no tendency to bend when fully extended. Users should understand if you need a really firm push or pull, i wouldn't extend beyond the first section or it will tend to collapse a little.

              Overall excellent product. Highly recommended.

              Knowing that I can use this telescoping shorty boat hook to fend off the dock or nearby boats is a confidence builder when docking in windy conditions!

                Even though I haven't used it on the boat yet.

                  Comments about Floating & Telescoping Shorty Boat Hook:

                  The boat hook is very sold and thicker than the standard model. My only complaint is that it is a very tight fit in my gunnel rod holders.

                                • Avoiding River Obstecles
                                • Hooking Anchor Line

                                Comments about Floating & Telescoping Shorty Boat Hook:

                                Fishing rivers using anchor systems, retrieving anchor lines is made much easier with this hook. The fact that it collapses makes it easy to store. It's 1" diameter aluminum makes it strong, yet light weight.
