Got to see one of these clip poles in action

We were on a river lining boats and there was a big boulder in the way preventing an easy way to pass the boat to the group downstream. We let the boat go (with a line attached to it) and a relatively simple gadget, a carabiner clip on a pole was a great tool for reaching out and grabbing the boat in the middle of the stream. As soon as the beaner clipped it detatched from the pole, giving you a line to your midstream boat

Some good river rescue gear on this site.

The clip is featured on the right and uses a common telescoping extension pole you can get from any home depot. You dont lose your carabiner either

Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.

I have been using a similar product for climbing. Basicaly allows climbers to clip first bolt on a sport rout to protec from a ground fall.

I would like to see this in action on a river. I think it would be great to clip a pinned boat with out getting wet.
