Two essential pieces of equipment on any small boat are a paddle—required by law in many states—and boat hook. Storing these long, bulky items, however, is often a problem. With Davis Instruments' Telescoping Paddle/Boat Hook Combination, one piece of gear serves double-duty and offers more flexibility than two separate units.

Made from light and rigid thick-walled anodized aluminum, the Telescoping Paddle/Boat Hook Combination extends from 80cm to 115cm with a simple twist of the pole. It's tested and proven to be four times stronger than the competition, taking 408kg of pulling force before failing.

The UV-stabilized Lexan polycarbonate hook is so durable, it's guaranteed for life. It's perfect for grabbing lines and items blown overboard, fending off obstructions and other boats, and pulling in a branch to reclaim a hooked lure. Unlike normal boat hooks that can be difficult to hold at arm's length one-handed, the paddle head offers a convenient two-handed grip for increased leverage. By simply removing the tip cover, an accessory with a 19mm thread such as a deck mop or brush can be screwed on.

The paddle blade catches a lot of water for maximum forward power and efficiency. With its shaft fully extended, it doubles as a push pole. For safety, the bright orange color and length make it an ideal signaling device.
