NuCanoe Mooring Pole by Ken Ziomek

One on my favorite accessories is a mooring pole. I use it instead of an anchor. The advantages include:
  • A paddle holder fastens it to the boat. No anchor in the boat saves space.
  • Unlike an anchor, you don't have mud and weeds in the boat when you bring it aboard.
  • It's faster to use than an anchor and rope.
  • It's great for the more mature (old) fisherman because it gives us something else with which to steady ourselves when entering or exiting the boat.

(I made my mooring pole from a rake handle and a piece of rebar!)
