New boat tool!!

Just got a new boat hook/dock line handling tool, it's a hook & moor. It's looks to be a heavy duty & very well made tool & now I can't wait for the ice to melt so I can try it, truth be told it'll be the Admiral that'll be using it, I think she will like it better than jumping to the dock to cleat off a line. The best price I found was Hamilton marine in Maine. Here is a YouTube video of it in use: http://youtu.be/7EAwDS9i9p0

I'am not sure where I saw the link to it, may of been yours but after holding it in my hands it seems really well made & engineered. I'am sure there'll be a learning curve to using it & getting the most out of it. I think it'll work great when I singlehand from the lower helm & coming in to a dock when no one is around to lend a hand. I bought the one that extends the longest, I figured it would be the most useful. I'll give a better review after using it during the trip to Lake Erie in April.
