It's easy enough to make a boot-hook from a length of hardware-store dowel rod and a suitable hook... and it gives you the opportunity to practise some fancy rope-work.

FWIW, our 2 shiny wooden boathooks double as a boom-crutch.
Well yes, but these come all shiny...

I would likely make one or get a more practical one like the West Marine. I do like nice varnished wood, to look at though.
