:D We still have a simple plastic one like that from the UK, called a 'happy hooker'. :o Very useful but we would first use a slide off snap hook on a boathook to connect with a buoy ring, then use the line threader, pull in and unhook the snaphook. We brought these over with us but so far haven't used them here. The snap hooks which have large mouths are very good as you can use them on or off the boathook even feed through a cleat by hand and clip back on the same line as a quick moor.
Mark my words, it will be dark again by nightfall :)

Tex, that does look like a good idea!
