Call their emergency number late at night and tell them something is wrong with their boat.

That clanking can be right because yours does not do it.

or

Get someone to stand on your shoulders and tie the offending line to the shroud real high up and real tight. While you are there wrap and tie lots of knots all over that damn wind chime.

Deal with it.
Im not going on anybodies boat uninvited.
Can you imagine, in this day and age what might happen?
God forbid, some thing goes wrong with his boat, well so and so neighbor saw you on board just the other day. Your inviting and opening your self up for trouble. I know, its very sad, but it is the times we live in.

Maybe leave a friendly note for the next time it happens or talk with the harbormaster, but I don't believe its your place to go aboard another persons property no matter how much of a nuisence or inconvenience it causes you.

Slightly off topic, one of the coolest things we like about our boat is that the lower spreaders have big hooks on them. When we put a halyard away, we run it through the hook and then clip it to the mast collar. I don't know why more boats don't have them! I'll take a picture when we're up next time.

How do you think Max-on gets paid... he's the guy the boat owner hires to sue your @ss.

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.

Agree - the only reason to be on another boat uninvited is to protect it from damage, or to protect it from damaging you. I don't think boat sounds qualify.

When we lived aboard in Canada, we had a neighbour who also lived on his boat and he was very sensitive to noise. He used to keep a supply of bungee cords on hand and when any boats clanging halyards woke him up, he'd gently step on board and bungee them off. He said the funniest thing was that nobody ever mentioned finding bungee cords in their halyards.

The floating dock we were berthed on was made with cement plates/ tiles in a metal frame. Some of these inlaid cement pieces would wobble and make a thunk-thunk noise when people walked over them. (I only know this because he told me...never noticed it before). Well one night comming home in the wee hours, we found him on his hands and knees prying up the cement inserts and rearranging them so they wouldn't wobble and he could sleep. LOL

Not to make light of clanging haylards... they are a serious nusciance.

Thanks for all the replies, think I will print out a a sheet with some suggestions on better methods of securing the halyards and laminate them. Then I can pass them out like large business cards.

The truth is after a while you do get used to the "music".

I always tie off my halyards... because if mine are banging I can't sleep. Yet if it's my neighbors... it's like a lullaby. However, it drives my husband crazy! But then again, noise in the classroom never bothered me, but one little whine from any child made my blood boil! If you're at your marina, know your neighbors. My neighbor with a clanging halyard has been ill this spring and not down at his boat. Because I knew that I felt comfortable boarding his boat and taking care of the halyard, and the leaves in the scuppers. Sometimes people are not being inconsiderate-just forgetful when they leave the boat.
