THE HAPPY CAPTAIN IS AN ESSENTIAL SAFETY DEVICE.Tests show that the Happy Captain boathook shape, like a “Shepherds Crook”, allows it, better than all others tried, to hook into straps on a lifejacket , so that a Man Over Board may be retrieved. The Happy Captain glow-in-the-dark boat hook also has the ideal shape to pick up, and retrieve on-board, any mooring ropes lying on a dock. A unique shuttle option (included) can thread ropes through cleats, or mooring buoy rings, with ease. Screws onto any extendable paint-roller-pole. MOORING A YACHT HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER.
