With proper mooring pendants a simple boat hook has served me well for nearly 38 years... Reach down, pick them up...

Even my neighbor, a single mom, can pull it off effortlessly..

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
