It can still happen! I had my boat on a boy earlier this year the weight was on a short line from boy to D ring, then the painter also went to the boy & back over the tubes BUT very loose as a back up!
After a day & night of force 9 gales the loose line had started to where through the top layer
I too kneed where patches on my bow!
