Wear to tubes

Should I be concerned about this wear? Iím thinking itís normal wear (from mooring ropes) on a superficial (non-integral) layer. So it can simply be over-patched for cosmetic reasons, correct?
(Apologies for noobie question)

Looks like may only be the wear patch needing replaced. Not ideal to have ropes rubbing on it, worth replacing it with more material and adding some C section (or cut D) rubber for the rope to sit in.

Hi Paul,
That looks like a Redbay; ours has the same setup. On the rare occasions we use a mooring I usually attach a mooring line to eye on the bow rather than the Samson post on top of the anchor locker. I tie that off on the mooring so that the load is on the bow eye, but with a trailing end coming up into the boat so that I can haul the whole lot up over the side to cast off. (Canít reach round to the bow eye whilst afloat)

If I was doing it regularly Iíd probably rig up something with shackles, karabiners or similar so I didnít have the possibility of excessive wear. Iíd avoid running the load up over the tubes like that though.

Cheers

Thanks Dan. If you get a chance to photo your rig that would be great.

Hi Paul. Fraid I donít have anything permanent rigged up cos we very seldom use moorings for anything other than a quick tea stop. If Iím leaving her over night like when weíre on holiday I do it like this ( excuse my limited art skills):Click image for larger version

Like I said *if* I did it regularly I might fix something up with a snap shackle/ karabiner to attach to the mooring to make deploying it easier.
