Re: Best Boat Hook?
was yours the $100 heavy duty, or the $35 cheapy. I bent a cheap one myself in a lock.
I've learned that they don't do double duty as a Spinnaker pole even in very light wind with just the jib.
They fold in half.
So maybe if someone could make a titanium or carbon fiber pole that could do double duty.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
