Re: Best Boat Hook?
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.
I've never used one as a spinnaker pole, but I had a home made wooden boat hook (with a bronze end), that I made extra long, that I used as a whisker pole for years with no drama. And, the best thing was, it floated!
