SoOkay...is that a Hunter that you have? I am sympathetic to this chap. My Hunter slapped so much it sounded like a Mike Tyson / Robin Given home movie...lol.
I admit that it is a goofy looking contraption but I had several friends with Hunters who swore by it. (Diaper is a good analogy).

nope, Jeanneau 43 Deck Salon. Funny, we've had the same issue from time to time and never thought of "hey we might be able to fix it", and here I am giving my thought on how to do it,

I have no tolerance for people who dismiss the issue as simply part of sailing. For us, it became an issue when our daughter kept us up most of the night crying or fussing. Just when you try to get an hour or two of sleep...the slap slap slap would start...Its like a ticking clock when you need to sleep.

If you hold of the dingy with a tied boathook or something and create a small space between your stern and the dinghy it might create a calmer area between it and you.

I don't know is sleeping at anchor with earplugs is a good idea.

I agree with Surfesq... why keep a boat if it is noisy at anchor... speaks of a poorly thought out design.

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.

a solution for wave slap

buy a few of those "noodles" that children use in a swimming pool.
thread about 4 of these together on polypropolene line and tie it off on either side of the stern.
it greatly reduces the wave slap noise.
fair winds,
eric
