Product of the Week: Shipstik - solving your berthing problems    

'Docking solo or short handed can be a challenge when the wind is blowing'    .

We all know that docking short-handed or even solo has its challenges, especially when there's a wind blowing. So here's another attempt to take the uncertainty out of berthing, no matter what kind of contrivance you are attempting to tie to. It's Shipstik, and it sounds like a great idea.

The unique, patent-pending design of Shipstik allows a rope to freely move through the entire length of the durable fiberglass ShipStik tubes, which telescope from 4 to 7 feet and snap securely into place at the proper length for docking. This versatile telescoping tube easily allows the user to place a mooring line over a piling, cleat, or mooring in an efficient, nearly error free, timely manner. No need to let your nerves, weather, or elements ever interfere with docking your boat again.

Shipstik - giving you a ’longer arm’ -  .. .  

One great advantage of the ShipStik is that it allows a user to stay on the boat during the docking process, which greatly reduces the possibility of injuries resulting from jumping off the boat.

Docking alone? Let the ShipStik help you. The ShipStik is light and easy to tie up to the dock, without leaving your boat making it the ideal dock mate for the single handed skipper.

Equipped with marine grade stainless steel hardware and thick neoprene grips for comfortable handling. Clear epoxy paint also protects the tubes from the harsh marine environment.

As an added bonus the ShipStik can also serve a dual purpose of acting as an all purpose ship handle and cleaning device.

It's easy, it's safe, it's simple, it will store easily. It's the ShipStik, and it's retailing at around $50.00.
