Gear: Spring Fever – One Handle. Forty Tools

Shurhold One Handle System

Feb 23, 2023

Mechanics use sockets instead of individual wrenches because they can complete a project in less time and the tools take up less storage space. It’s no different with the Shurhold One-Handle-Does-It-All-System. Boat owners need only a single handle and any of over forty specialized quick-attach tools to get the job done fast.

The foundation of the Shurhold system is the company’s high-strength handles. Manufactured in the USA from polished, triple-anodized marine-grade aluminum, they’re lightweight and corrosion-resistant, and have comfortable rubber no-slip grips.

Shurhold handles are offered in 13″, 30″, 40″ and 60″ fixed lengths and two adjustable types. The 6′ Telescoping version locks at four intervals between 40″ and 72″ while the 9′ Telescoping model locks at five positions between 60″ and 108″. Each Shurhold attachment clicks easily and securely onto any of the handles using the unique SHUR-LOK quick-release system. To remove, depress the button and slide the tool off.

Shurhold offers a One-Handle-Does-It-All-System attachment for virtually any onboard need. Cleaning tools include a wide range of deck and soft-bristled brushes, mops, brooms, swivel scrubbers and squeegees. Fishing accessories include a gaff and three specialized nets. For boating, there’s a boat hook, paddle and the Dock-A-Reni, a handy device that makes handling dock lines a breeze. The 10″ curved adapter makes cleaning the waterline easier while the 30″ extension is perfect for radomes and other lofty equipment. A GoPro/VIRB camera adapter lets boat owners capture the action—even underwater.

Fixed Length starts at $12.50 (the smallest 13″ Handle), Telescopic start at $48.81, and attachments start at $12.50.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
