Mooring line problems on a Humber bow, any ideas?
On the Humber ocean pro, there is a channel on the bow for a rope or mooring line. Whilst the boat is held from the hull with a painter to the mooring. The pick up is pulled over the front and tied in the boat. In choppy weather it bounces out and then hangs over the side, then rubs the tubes! On the old avon we had a rubber cleat on the bow with a gap in the middle to run the rope through.
Any ideas that could be glued on or something?
All i can think is to put two small holes in the raised rubber ridges that create the channel, then put a mini bungee over the mooring line attached to the two small holes to stop it bouncing out.
