BOAT-HOOK

BOAT-HOOK, an iron hook with a sharp point on the hinder part thereof, to stick into a piece of wood, a ship's tide, &c. It is stuck upon a long pole or shaft, (pl. III. fig. i. n.) by the help of which a person in the boat may either hook any thing to confine the boat in a particular place, or push her off by the sharp point attached to the back of the hook.
