As noted above this is an issue in the PNW given alternating wind and currents. I use a length of shock cord to keep the buoy away from the hull when things are calm. As wind or current picks up the cord stretches, and the load is taken up by the proper mooring line. This only works if you have a decent overhange and/or a pulpit.
