Palm Bay, Florida, United States
Condition:New

This is a one off, I started making this boat hook about 10 years ago to go with a boat I was restoring, long story short I sold the boat before I finished this, after about a year I finally finished it. Made of white oak and african mahogany the pieces were machined to thickness, placed in a steamer for a hour and a half, when removed all the pieces were worked into a jig, after 2 months of drying out to keep there shape they were removed and laminated with west system marine epoxy and placed back into the jig, when the epoxy cured it was removed and the real work started, it was hand tooled with several draw knives to round it and bring it to shape, the ball was cut with a chisel, it's all one piece and unbelievably strong, the bronze hook was purchased from a marine supply house and fitted, after a ton of sandpaper the hook was removed and seven coats of marine spar varnish applied sanding between coats. It's been sitting in my office closet for 6 years or so and has some minor superficial dings in the varnish that can be seen in certain light. I designed the bent hook as a life saving device, I fell off the boat a lot, it's easy to handle from either end. It stands 6 feet 1 inches tall.

The new Mercedes GLA down a salt mine in Cheshire Trying to find an unusual venue for new car launches is something that taxes the brains of car PR teams, and Mercedes came up with somewhere a little left field for the launch of the new GLA Compact SUV – the UK’s biggest salt mine at Winsford in Cheshire. (adsbygoogle=window.adsbygoogle||[]).push({});The Winsford Rock Salt Mines – 130 miles of salt mining tunnels running under Cheshire – are the result of salt mining since the 19th century and now comprise of 130 miles of tunnels some 189 metres below ground, a void beneath the earth of 23 million cubic metres.
