Description

We supply the bronze hook and instructions, you supply the handle, and then craft a beautiful, traditional boat hook that stands upright in water. If you drop the hook overboard, retrieval is easy.

8.25" X 1.25"
Please note, this version is a bit heavier (12 oz instead of 8-9 oz as in the past) so you may need to either do some extra shaping of the handle, or drill out a bit of the bronze in the hollow, to lighten the hook, in order to help the handle stick up enough out of the water should it go overboard.

Instructions include four pages... drawings, measurements, and variations survey with different types of wood, taper, ends, and how well (or not) they did with the upright float test.

I haven't had time to make the handle yet, but am very pleased with the hook and it's weight and finish. Delivery was quick and efficient.
