No Wind, No Fuel, Grab the Boat Hook

January 2020 News

Few things are as frustrating to a boat owner as being becalmed or running out of fuel—or both. If a tow isn't available, paddling is the next-best solution. With Davis Instruments Telescoping Paddle/Boat Hook Combination, it's easy to store this essential piece of safety gear and have a boat hook immediately at the ready when the dock is reached.

While some states require having a paddle on board, it's a good item for any boat owner to carry. For signaling, bright orange Davis paddles command attention. And if it falls overboard, it floats.

The Telescoping Paddle/Boat Hook Combination extends to 66", yet collapses down to a compact 32". Its rugged shaft is thick, anodized aluminum tubing with clear Hard Cote that resists corrosion. The Davis twist-lock mechanism is strong enough to hold over 280 lbs. without slipping—that's more than most humans can pull.

The Lexan polycarbonate hook of the Telescoping Paddle/Boat Hook Combination is virtually unbreakable and guaranteed for life. Plus, its bright orange safety tip is easily removed to reveal a 3/4" Acme thread to attach mops and brushes.

For owners who desire an even smaller stowable size, the Davis Telescoping Paddle is ideal. At a mere 20", it extends to a very useful 45".

Davis Instruments Telescoping Paddle/Boat Hook Combination costs $49.99; the Telescoping Paddle is $44.99.
