Re: Noise from dockline passing thru Hawse Pipe

All excellent suggestions that I will try. I have however experimented with different types of line. The squeak comes as the line becomes taut in the pipe and then suddenly slips/drags/rubs the contact point of the hawse pipe. I'm going to start of with fabric softener as I've heard of this before. I have tried securing loosely as well as tight with no large improvement. I am determined to get to the bottom of this. Seems I always think of this most when I'm 1/2 awake wishing I could get to sleep.

The corrugated hose sounds interesting as well as the New England Ropes.

Thanks to all !

Side note: Called Thumper at PSC this morn as I'm considering changing from the sole mounted table set to the bulkhead version. Would certainly open up a ton of space. Anyone make this conversion? Anything good or bad to say about it? I know I should probably start another thread but I'm throwing it out there. I'll bet its pricey !!
Thumper is darned knowledgeable.

Thanks All!
