Yes, you'll have less chafe problems, but many boats don't have a bow eye. Most trailerable boats have a fairly substantial bow eye, but most larger boats do not. Adding one requires a fairly solid backing plate and possibly tieing it into the hull of the boat, in addition to the keelson.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
