This telescoping hook delivers great value for the price. Primary use is to assist with launching & docking our boat. Aids in keeping the boat from slamming into the dock, reaching out to grab a mooring cleat and gently pushing away when launching.

The telescoping feature is really nice taking up mimimal space in our 17 ft. open bow runabout.

In my opinion worth the price and will purchase several more units as gifts to other boaters.

This works great for snagging all things floating around our dock, and the locking mechanism is especially effective and easy to use (it works like those adjustable hiking poles). And yes, it does float, even w/o the hand grip on it (see below).

However, there are two issues. One is that the hook screws onto the end of the pole, which also means that it screws off the end of the pole. I've never had it come off, but it is usually loose.

I might try wrapping some plumber's Teflon tape on the threads and see if that doesn't tighten things up a bit.

But then, the other day, I had been using the pole in the water to snag some things off the bottom. When I collapsed the pole for storage, the hand grip shot off and sunk. I suppose that water had gotten into the pole and hydraulically shot the grip off like one of those squirt guns.

Oh well, I suppose I can find a new grip at a bike store.

Otherwise, it's great.

    Comments about Overton's Overtons Floating Telescoping Boat Hook:

    Works great while docking when I'm alone and came in real handy for getting fishing lures from tree limbs without running into them. My small dog loves to swim with her life vest and I can retrieve her from my boat with it.

        • Small Boats

        Comments about Overton's Overtons Floating Telescoping Boat Hook:

        I am going to cut my mast in half and then use this pole to hoist up the mast into place when sailing. This will greatly reduce the stress on my back of having to lift the long mast into place.

          Comments about Overton's Overtons Floating Telescoping Boat Hook:

          Met and exceeded all expectations. Lived up to advertising. It really floats too. Dropped in 20ft
          of water, thought it was lost for good. Turns out
          it wasn't. It stayed afloat till I could retrieve
          it.
