There’s nothing new about a boat hook—unless it’s so innovative that it makes docking or mooring a boat easier and safer. At least that’s what the judges at the 2008 Marine Accessories Aftermarket Trade Show (MAATS) in Las Vegas thought of the new telescoping Wrino Boat Mooring Hook. With its second, smaller hook and a splice-gripping clip opposite the hooks, you can hitch onto a dock cleat from the safety of your deck rather than making a leap of faith onto the pontoon and wrestling with a still-moving boat. Clever!
