Re: Noise from dockline passing thru Hawse Pipe

I've used liquid fabric softener on ropes and docklines in the past to keep them both supple and quiet, this might reduce a large proportion of the noise you are hearing. Is your noise a creaking from the lines themselves or a rubbing between the lines and hawsepipe?
