Product of the Week: Hook and Moor

'Hook and Moor with mooring ball'    .

What a great present for birthdays, Christmas or other celebrations for the cruising sailor to make his or her life easier when mooring.

This new Hook & Moor Boat Hook helps thread lines through hard-to-reach mooring balls and post rings. Always ready, it allows the use of the boat's own mooring line for direct one step tie-ups without using a messenger or guide line. It also works as a regular boat hook when the hook head is locked open.

The benefit of Hook & Moor, which is produced by Robship, is that it pulls the mooring rope through the ring and back onto the boat in one motion without having to dangerously reach far overboard. Just place the eye of dock line in the Hook & Moor carabiner, reach down and pull the hook right through cleat or mooring eye. Bring the dock line back towards boat and secure the line’s eye on the cleat.

'Compared to traditional hooks, the patented Hook & Moor provides superior functionality when mooring,' explains New England Ropes, Pleasure Marine Market Manager, Kevin Coughlin. 'It eliminates the risk of going overboard when mooring the boat to a buoy and you will no longer need outside assistance when anchoring or docking.'

The 2 meter hook will have a retail price in the range of $150, and the 3 meter hook will have a price in the range of $175. Product will be available through most major marine retail shops as well as on-line partners, and it is the kind of product that is easy to have delivered, if there's not an outlet near you.
