Bump in the night

We stayed aboard Fri night at our exposed mooring.
There was no wind and only 6" waves and for a couple of hours at slack tide the mooring ball and dinghy kept banking the boat. From topsides it was just a touch but from the forepeak it sounded like drums.
Other than setting an anchor which has it's own side effects I didn't want to deal with do you have any ideas of how to kill the sound?

Fenders would not help as the bumping was from various places.
