Many new items are coming on the market that allow a rather difficult task to be performed, safer and easier.

Example: a boat hook that actually clips the line to a davit, bow eye in one easy step. " actually i am searching the site for the post ".

Would a new forum expressly dedicated to new or older tools, mechanical devices, ropes with the same textile strength as steel etc. be something the members of this site enjoy, use and add to ... for the benefit of all ?

Thoughts, comments fellow members ?

Chief, are you looking for this one?


just kidding.... More something like this?

more:
www.dockingstick.com/boat-hook-adapter.html
shurhold.com/dock-a-reni
www.go2marine.com/product/245863F/grabbe...iever-line-hook.html
www.robship.com/en/products/HookMoor.aspx

now you can choose......

I once used the robship and it's great but at Euro 175 = $235 far to expensive......

Edit: just made my own docking stick from 2 pieces of PVC pipe... Have to see how it works once the glue is cured but for $0.50 total cost it beats their $40 price tag (for two). Thanks for the idea, Alen :cheer:

Jurgen can you put up a pic of the one you made.

I ain't paying no 235 dollars for no hook.

I'm going to measure, and put up a pic of what i have been using for 10 years, yea it didn't go with the boat i sold.

It's crude, but long, and i hook the davits at the dock, hook other boats, push off other boats, and the dock etc.

yep, once it's cured and I can touch it. Currently held in my vise.... Used a bit to much PVC glue I think. It's dead simple, look at the docking stick picture first. One longer piece of 3/4" PVC pipe (~1ft) and a ~4" piece slit open lengthwise and glued to the first one. My $8 telescopic boat hook from Wally World unfortunately has .88" diameter so pushing it on may be a challenge but 1" pipe was to large. May have to "heat-form" it a bit.....

If you would boat where I boat you would need one too to defend your boat from PWC's, bass boats and party barges! OK, a baseball bat would work too.

Chief, the first version didn't work as the pipe was to thick wall and could only be unclipped by brute force. Had to invest $3 in 10ft of Class 200 3/4" pipe from HD. Almost perfect in ID and only needed a bit of heat forming to make it a tad thinner (for the clip). Have to tap the screw holes tomorrow when the glue is fully cured and then you get your pictures.

What a logic, a 3/4" class 200 pipe has OD=1.050" and ID=0.930".............

Actually, I do see a need for something like that ..... a bit like a tester's bench for new ideas ..... or maybe to look at some current issues in our own "laboratory" ..... might be kind of fun.

Maybe someone bought something was no good.

Maybe someone bought something that was good.

Maybe some knows of a bargain.

Put it all in one place.

Was just a thought I had, I have so few I had to write it down.

That's what I had intended with the "Little things....." thread. Unfortunately activity is low and I have to collect things from the different sections which sounded good...

Never saw it.

Maybe we " meaning Mike or Dave " can start the forum, and move your awesome posts to it.

And to add ... Was not my intent to intrude on your idea .

Don't want to add to Mikes or Dave's load.

Maybe take it back to the team and see if the idea flies, if not no problemo.

No intrusion seen from my side..... If we can make it better I am all for it. The only problem we may have in the long run is that we already have a large number of sections and newcomers seem to sometimes have problems to find their way around.

Seriously, I always do. I have a nice spreadsheet which shows me AWG to metric area (also all the current ratings), screw from #X to metric diameter and pipe sizes ID/OD in metric.
When I build something I only use metric and whenever I use bolts and they are not going into an existing thread they are metric too.
Imperial fasteners I buy piecewise, metrics in boxes........

Chief, can't find my M8*25mm screws.... As soon as I find them you will get more but here's a picture of the parts before painting (Rustoleum Plastic or Krylon Fusion):

Chief, here you go.....
Found SS M8 screws and even the cap screws I really wanted to use. Wrote it up a bit and added it to my library:
www.pinzi.us/boating/Docking-Aid.pdf
Total cost for seven of them was less than $5 but only because I hand carry my metric screw supplies when I fly back from Europe. Just for fun I checked at the local home improvement store. They want $1.25 for a single screw!!!!! Now I only have to spray paint them one day but most likely it will never happen.

Here's a thought. How about a "New Products Reviews" sticky on Dock Walk?

That might either end up as my "Little things thread" or as "easy" to scan through as this one: baylinerownersclub.org/index.php/forum/b...u-have-and-have-done or the Lazlo memorial thread.......
