One thing about chafe protection... use something that isn't waterproof. Hose is not very good in a storm or hurricane, since it will allow the nylon docklines to fail due to internal heat and friction.... using something like denim or canvas is a much better solution for really severe storms, since they let the water through to cool and lubricate the lines.
That's interesting.
