Boat Hook Kit

Product Description
$34.95
Maximum quantity available reached.

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.

Old fashioned bronze boat hook

I carry 2 identical bronze boat hooks aboard my brigantine. They are prizes because over the last 50 years I have had 3 stolen. Fortunately I bought 4 hooks from Wilcox-crettenden Company a long time ago. Recently I lost both hooks again by theft but had one spare bronze hook left I tried to find a identical mate to the one I have through catalogs, swap shops, marine stores, etc. to no avail. I took a chance on yours based on the photo and wa-la! It is the exact pattern as my Wilcox-Crettenden one. Thank You!
