The 10 Best Boat Hooks

This review has been updated 11 times since it was first published in October of 2016. If you are planning to head out on the waters of a lake, river, or even the ocean, make sure your boat is well equipped with one of these hooks. They will enable you to more easily tie up at a mooring and push off again when it’s time to go. We’ve included a variety of models, varying in length and pulling strength, so no matter what size vessel you have, there is one for you. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the review.
