Re: Upright floating boat hook
Insane right? Well were all a little nuts, choosing boats as a passion. These hooks float upright, making them easier to grab when dropped OB.
They all floated, without benefit of calculation, graph or plan. I should know - I've dropped a few overboard.
FWIW, you can use a cheap aluminum boat hook and jam a fishing sinker in its handle end to achieve the same effect. But where's the fun in that?
This new ship here is fitted according to the reported increase of knowledge among mankind. Namely, she is cumbered end to end with bells and trumpets and clocks and wires. It has been told to me she can call voices out of the air or the waters to con the ship while her crew sleep. But sleep though lightly. It has not yet been told to me that the sea has ceased to be the sea.--Rudyard Kipling
