Rope Fairlead supplier

Our sailing club has a problem with a couple of the ribs in that where they are moored the mooring line secured inside the bow runs over the front of the tubes and is chafing the hypalon
I thought I'd seen a rope Fairlead made in Rubber to guide the rope over the tubes not over the bow but just back from the bow similar to the Fairleads on a yacht but made in rubber they don't want handles or cleats because someone will tie off to them it's purely as a guide
We could use a split d fender section but that won't look particularly good over the side of the bow
I've looked on polymarine and henshaws website but can't see anything
Can anyone point me in the right direction!
Please don't suggest other mooring procedures as this is a club and change doesn't go down well

Cheers
Ken

Have a look at mine, its basically the rubbing strake cut to length and glued on vertically - seems to work a treat.

I think Humber do them as that is the model they use for mooring strops

Rope Fairlead supplier

Barnet Marine (XS RIBS) will probably be able to supply one as they fit a bow open fairlead guide option on their ribs.

That is how the fairlead is done on my own boat however it wouldn't work for the club ribs as the rope would Jump out as it ran across to the pontoon
The bow eye on the boats (ribcraft) are set below the water so the boats are moored via a deck cleat in the bow. Even if there was a painter rope permanently attached the rope would still chafe on the tubes while the boats are in use and the rope was lead back into the boat you can't reach the bow eye from the boat (and club members wouldn't want to get wet hands to remove it anyway)

What is needed is something set on the bow at approximately 10 o'clock, a rubber handle or cleat would do the job but someone would likely tie off to it and damage the tubes it's something like the picture below thats needed but in rubber obviously Click image for larger version

That would probably do the job the Avon one is pretty close I even thought of cutting the centre out of a handle to act as a guide but I thought I'd seen exactly what I have in mind on other ribs. A good Google session doesn't find anything
Maybe I imagined it!

I am sure I've seen them too there's also paddle retainers solid block with hole through split one side for the rope to go through.

Well if it's a Ribcraft like mine why not fit a stock part from RC which has a retainer clip that prevents the rope slipping out. You get it on there spates site. Works for on a swing mooring in Argyll.
