Apparently, when my boat is out on it's mooring the ball and the chain scuff the hull.. The scuffings not bad but the chain or shackles seem to scratch the bow below the waterline. Real scratches, deep enough that they need to be epoxied eventually. (if it ever stops raining)
What can I do to stop this? some of the boats have the lines tied to the top of the ball, they don't have scratches. Mine are on the bottom of the ball. The chain on my mooring is too long because my boat really travels when its out there. Could it be the chain is going horizontal under the boat?
1,000 lb block, 20ft 5/8" bottom chain, and I think with the 5/16" mooring chain I'm up to about 80ft, The depth at high tide is never over 35 ft.
I"m a bit perplexed on this one guys
