The large hooks are particularly useful to hang coiled dock lines, life vests, rain gear, and just about anything that needed to be within easy access, yet kept securely out of the way until needed, aboard motor and sailing vessels of any size. What in addition to spare lines,and clothing would be considered? Well, I like to hang my hand-held VHF radio on a bulkhead in the cockpit on one hook and wrap the connecting safety strap around another nearby hook. Handy cockpit navigational aids can be rigged to hang conveniently from a hook, as well as small flashlights on a lanyard. The hooks stay in place for many years with the original adhesive. Should a hook become brittle because of exposure to the sun (takes about 5 years in Florida) just slide the old hook out and slide a new one in; no need to replace the adhesive! On the other hand, should a better place be found for the hook, it is an easy matter to just remove and relocate. Truly a wonderful asset on my sailing vessel.
