Telescopic boat hook
The boat hook is one of the most common boat equipment. Its construction is quite simple: it is just a long pole with a hook tip. The first boat hooks used to be made of wood, but it was not the most accurate material since it was too heavy, and its length made it too difficult to manage. Therefore nowadays, it is more common to use telescopic boat hooks made of aluminum. Since it is much lighter and can fold, its length is no longer a problem. You can adjust it to your needs depending on the task you do, or completely fold it once you do not need to use it anymore.

For example, we can use it to reach the objects floating in the sea, like buoys, or manage the anchor rope more easily without getting our hands dirty. It is recommendable to have one always on the board and to count with a boat hook clip that will help us to secure it.
