One thing about chafe protection... use something that isn't waterproof. Hose is not very good in a storm or hurricane, since it will allow the nylon docklines to fail due to internal heat and friction.... using something like denim or canvas is a much better solution for really severe storms, since they let the water through to cool and lubricate the lines.

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.
