what to use to stop chafing

i have my boat moored and i have a tow bridle thing that goes from the rope the main rope to the tow bridle that has two clips i use to hole the boat to the mooring. so on my jib i have a clip to clip to the bottom of the jib instead on shackle i was wonder since i clip on clip to the eye of the boat and the other to the jib clip an the clip is on the deck so the clip rubs on the bow of the boat and causing rust stains and markes from were it rubs how can i fix this or secure it some were else?

I think it would help if you took a crack at editing the question. I've read it three times and can't really figure out what you are asking. Sorry.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one. I'm picturing a boat secured at jib clew.

Well, I've read it several times and the best I can make out is. He is using non-stainless for hardware to secure the boat to the mooring, and to attach the jib tack. This hardware is rusting and staining the boat. This is a 16' trailer boat and there is an eye on the bow that he is using. If this is correct then I would suggest using stainless hardware and stop the rust. Pictures of the set up would be helpful.

i think i might have solved my problem i found a velcrow thing that goes around the clip and stops the metal clip from rubbing on the bow of the boat. i'm sorry if you didn't understand it i know it wasn't to clear but that is the best i could describe it kinda hard to describe it but i think i fixed the problem.

Three suggestions:

1. Capitalization
2. Punctuation
3. Grammar

Hey Jim....I am the prime offender all three (capitalization, spelling and punctuation not grammar for me) and people seem to understand me. It's just Dave ebonics for me. I truly read this 5 times and still didn't understand. Maybe smallboatlovr can reexplain himself

Pick up some old fire hose, 2 inch hose and cut a length from the top to the eye let, this will run the line through the chock and keep it from rubbing, you may also wanna whip the ends so the hose is more secure.

Oh dear.

Will text messaging be the end of proper language? I wonder.

The end of proper language started when Yankees dropped u's from the correct spelling of English words and then started making up words with u being a prominent feature, like "drive-thru."
