Re: Noise from dockline passing thru Hawse Pipe
1) the sound is likely caused by the line stretching as the boat moves. Try New England Ropes - Product Details
this should eliminate any stretch on the boat.
2) most chaff guards and certainly anything waterproof (like hose) prevent the line from cooling properly and lead to premature line failure. Better to go without.
