You could just put a wear patch there made of 3mm cladding, it'd take an age to wear through and even if it eventually did just rip it off and put a new bit on?

or would a rope go do the job?

or paddle holder?

Why not just use the bow eye?

Exactly, it doesn't have to be stuck on the bow! It can go at 10 o'clock on your tube.

Non"surgery" just glue. Quick, easy and cheap.

24 posts in and were back to what I asked for! I'd seen all the henshaws stuff and polymarine but thought I'd seen something on a boat designed exactly for the purpose. Jeffstevens thought the same but he only came up with the same as I did in his searches
I'll put the options forward and see what the guys think.
It's much easier doing stuff on your own boat as there's only you to please but when you have a dozen or more drivers and many more sailors to keep happy it's hard work

This is the nearest I think I've seen so far with possibly the longer horn trimmed back a bit or maybe a handle with the centre section cut out to leave two horns to catch the rope Click image for larger version

Do you think that one fairlead would stop chafe as the rope will tighten on a least 500 MM of tube or there abouts depending on height of the Sampson post.

As an idea
we drape rubber door mats over our tubes when we inspect jetties to stop barnacles wearing the tubes B&Q sell them the ones with the 22mm holes in their cheap last forever and can be tied/tie wrapped together if you do it right you can use the ties as hinges and fold it up into one mat size and stow inboard whilst at sea. Leave enough over the side to give weight to keep in place & tie off inboard.

It's quite odd as there is no Sampson post, the boats are moored via a cleat at deck level then over the tube and across to the pontoon and all the rope has done is wear about a 2-3" strip on the top of the tube they did try the rubber mat idea but it wasn't overly successful depending on who actually tied it on but if there's a fairlead in place then a mat with a hole in would probably work
