If you have a perfectly sandy bottom, you should be OK-ish. Otherwise, you're in danger of a mark or two.

RIBase
I've seen people tie large bouys on to their lifelines either side of the boat, when tide goes out the rib "leans" on bouy instead of tubes.

This is routine at the sailing club I belong too. Beach is predominantly sand with some stone in it.

If it bothers you, maybe tie on some fenders or other protection? Glue on additional rubbing strips?

On arrival all good. The harbour master gave me his line as the weather was worsening. When keeled over there was hardly any tube in contact with the ground so thankfully no damage. As the weather gathered pace the hull was flooded with an on the turn incoming tide so moved to another more protected line. Wasn't happy with an anchor in those conditions so the line is the way to go.Thanks for the advice people.
