    Thank goodness for a no-wake day.

    This seems to work much better than the sky-hook tool I have for sale !!

    Always tie a small line to your tools and a loop for your wrist.

    Also a strong magnet - Very clever.

    Even my WIFE sees how CLEVER you are!

    Great solution!

    (Keep a bottle of Dawn Liquid Dish detergent handy when doing this, just in-case. I once observed a gasoline spill at a dock that Dawn squirted onto the water made a huge Immediate difference!).
