Most annoying noise is the sound carrying across from other liveaboards on their boats.

Boasun The loud chewing noise you are hearing, are caused by Mutant Marine Boring worms that have a strong taste for Fiberglass.
But those of you trying to sleep in San Diego Bay. The pistol shrimp are night time creatures and are snapping away and it sounds like that you are at the wrong end of a rifle range.

bluwateronly From another liveaboard- the only sounds that bug me enough to get up off my lazy *** is a halyard banging. I do love the motion and sounds living on the water and have a hard time sleeping on land My slip is very near the Oakland airport and sometimes they fly so close it makes the mast buzz which gets my dog barking which makes something spill which makes me cuss which makes dog go hide Oh and by-the-way beer works great as a sleep aid.

kjango I'm pretty new to living aboard , but from day one I've loved the noises onboard at night . My favorite is a dull clunking from 2 cast iron pots clunking together gently in the galley . I love all the creaking & groaning in the boat at night . I've associate those noises with my well being & am comforted by them . The nights I've had trouble sleeping are the ones where everything is dead still .

RUN!!!!! RUN!!!

WARNING!!!!!!!!!

YOU ARE IN GREAT DANGER!!!

MOVE OUT NOW!!!


YOU'RE INFESTED BY THE DANGEROUS:


MORPIONS!!!


Leave the boat and your belongings back....those little creatures, or animals you are getting are not weed eating fish....they are called "MORPIONS", they are like the crabs...of crabs...they are experts in osmosis, and enter the hull thru blisters....they squeeze themselves thru the molecules of fiber glass and wood (luckily not thru Carbon Fiber and Kevlar, as they avoid those boats..they're allergic to fast boats), on most boats, specially crappy old ones and Catalinas...

Here's a mug shot of one done by our resident artist..





What they do is, as they pass thru the hull, they get together, they aglomerate into larger masses, they eat cookies and chocolate, and then...they rape sleeping sailors...but they leave no traces...other than a funny feeling when you next go in the head....kinda like "ants in the sugar box", if you know what I mean.... An itchy a**hole.....

You need to paint your hull with a super rare very expensive paint called:

"LA SURRENDER"...

Unfortunately its very very very very EXPENSIVE...as it is made with a very rare substance, called French Bravery....so only a few cans were made...

what you do...if your lucky to get one can, is paint it over your antifouling...

I have never seen the MORPIONS, I know they exist, because some guys around my marina walk "funny"..they suffer of Gayness...a disease spread by excessive admission of Morpions analy...known victims: Boy George, Elton John, Camaraderie...etc..sad but true...

Most people..... don't admit having those bore making animals in their boats..... some do admit....but they're "openly" "different"....

I'm protected... my cruising speed is over 6kts, and my boat moves..hence no marine growth

That's more than a sighing sound.
