Frog Hooks were designed for a family of klutzes. Ours. Before we made Frog Hooks we could destroy every adjacent boat in the marina, including our own. People would have six bumpers on their boat alongside of ours. They would sit in lawn chairs waiting for us to try and dock our boat. We were a continual source of amusement and entertainment to everyone in the marina. Putting feet through the windshield while climbing off the bow of the boat was an accomplishment we did many times. Losing keys and sunglasses to the briny depths was one of our regular routines. A ship’s store could be started with the vast inventory we lost. “Man Overboard” was our normal salutation upon arriving at the dock.
The “Frog” (my husband, also an excellent boatsman) out of pure embarrassment, not wanting to be associated with the rest of us fools, decided there had to be a better way to dock and board a boat that was foolproof. His Frog Hooks brought dignity,sanity and self respect back into our lives. Well, at least with boating.
To our great amazement we found many other advantages to the Frog Hook System. Our engine was no longer hitting into the dock, and we also had access to it for servicing it. We didn’t have to buy lines and bumpers anymore. Our boat was secure in minutes without wasting time trying to figure out how to tie lines properly. We actually looked professional, which is an outstanding feat for our family.
“Frog” actually associated with us again. Now you know why they are called Frog’s Hooks!
Marriages can be saved. Maybe we should clue in “Dear Abby?”
