boat hook/paddle combination

Post by Jimbob » Tue Feb 26, 2019 2:17 pm

I used to carry a paddle in my runabout for "just in case". While shopping for a paddle for my new boat, I just found this item that is a boat hook / paddle combination. It's adjustible from 48" to 72". Pretty slick idea. I might just get one for my new boat.

That's why I shaped the handle on my paddle that way. It comes in handy when docking or to grab a line or swimmer in the water.

Very Nice!
I'm tempted to make one myself, but I need to get this boat finished.
