Robship’s Hook & Moor uses a rotating, bearing-driven “hook” to reliably thread a line with a loop on the end through a ring or cleat with a simple pull or push.
It would be impossible to describe exactly how the system operates in the space of this short review. But it does, indeed, work. Because it takes a bit of practice to figure out, you won’t want to just hand the Hook & Moor off to a non-sailing guest. But for singlehanders, it could be just the thing for ensuring safe, predictable landings. Newbies can also use the Hook & Moor like a conventional boathook. $157.Robship
