HAPPY CAPTAIN
At last, a boathook designed to make mooring a boat safe and simple. Not just a boathook, it’s a whole new way of mooring, docking and caring for boats. The hook-end is specially designed to easily scoop a mooring line from a dock and deliver it back to the users hands. When fitted with the (provided) shuttle and mooring-leader rope, it will magically thread the rope through a dock cleat or mooring buoy ring.
It has a carbon fibre outer pole and it has no parts that can corrode. The trigger-controlled triple extension pole retracts to 1 meter (3ft 3 inches) for easy stowing and extends to near 3 meters (9 ft) for useful reach. It glows in the dark so that a user can find it at night, and it floats. It will not electrocute you if you use it (with the optional paint-roller adapter fitted to the pole) for painting round the house.
The attachment mechanism on the triple-extension pole allows the boat-hook end to be swapped for useful optional sea-tools from the Happy Captain product range, such as high quality deck brushes, a fish-spear cluster, or a lap-pool leaf-scoop net, and many more.
The Happy Captain product range includes smart, useful, and easy-wearing apparel, such as wind and waterproof Pocket jackets, T-shirts and hats. www.happycaptain.com.au
