At 300 quid I can't see the club going for that!
It would also require quite a bit of surgery as the boat has a d section fender over the bow vertical seam which the side fenders butt up to rather than the more usual way of taking the d fender around the boat in one length

Is this not a bit more durable for a club boat?

You see the rope lying over the tube in the picture posted by CJL well that's exactly were we need to protect the boat as the mooring line chafes the top of the tubes. The boats are tied via the deck cleat rather than the bow eye
Fitting a bow fairlead or eye of any sort would require surgery and we need an easy fix

A wear patch would cover up the Mark but eventually the patch itself will wear hence why we're looking for something to restrain the rope
It looks like an oar clip or similar may be the way to go

This is for a sailing club rescue/ Mark laying rib you can't have stuff sticking up or pointy bits to get snagged on and you definitely can't spend lots of money
Needs to be simple smooth and above all cheap
