I don't know if any of them were HD or not, but IIRC, the last one was around $75, telescoped to around 15 feet, and was somewhat of a beefier build than the previous WM versions I had. This didn't...

Re: Best Boat Hook?

I went through three or four WM, or WM style boat hooks. Junk IMO. They don't like water, especially salt water. Their cheaply anodized surface will start to corrode, making it difficult to slide...

Re: Non-Marine Snatch Blocks?

I would guess for spin sheets.

If you've ever had to thread 2+ boat lengths (general rule of thumb) of spin sheet through a 'regular' block, you quickly learn to appreciate the invention of the...

Re: LED Navigation lights

Re: LED Navigation lights

The trouble is, LED nav lights, specifically certified versions, just haven't been around long enough for any real comprehensive data, so we're left with anecdotal opinions.
