I have a neighbor just like that. And he wonders why his tach doesn't work when he starts his engine and idles...

Re: Slapping Halyards

The owners of a boat a couple of slips down the dock from me went away this weekend and left their Jack Russell terrier onboard, the little guy kept barking for hours, finally I couldn't take it any more so I took it upon myself to climb aboard their vessel and wrap some duct tape around the little nippers muzzle, hope they get the message and start to become responsible pet owners.

So it is ok for you to cause suffering to an animal that has no idea that it is doing wrong? It cannot drink, and because it only sweats through it's tongue it cannot do that either. A truly despicable act that should have severe consequences on you.

Re: Slapping Halyards

Is this really the same person? Ready to assault someone who goes aboard his boat to stop his halyards slapping, but boards another's boat and tapes a dog's mouth shut? Well done, Cburger; this thread was ripe for some satirical exaggeration for effect!
Just to get my oar in the water here, I will say that I have silenced a few halyards myself, with some old twine. Somewhere I read of the idea of fitting some small hooks on the spreaders to secure halyards away from the mast; I may try this on my boat.

Re: Slapping Halyards

Dang, I am glad I have good neighbors! We had some heavy winds a few weeks back and I went topside to better secure one of my halyards. While up there, a 40 knot gust rolled through and I could hear banging and clanging on other docks, but ours was quiet...except for the wind sound.

Coops.
Agreed! Wonder what the SPCA would think about that act?

I truly hope that this post was in jest. If so, in very bad taste. If not, an admission of a criminal act.

Sheesh.

There is nobody more vile, despicable, and just plain rotten than an animal abuser.

...And if that comment was made in jest, it's only a half-step better.

That's really heavy. If it's true, Karmas a bitch.

Re: Slapping Halyards

I'd bet lunch he is trying to show that either is wrong, boarding someone else's boat, is just wrong. I'm sure he did nothing to secure the noise maker, be it a halyard or a dog.
I see his point, but it's not clear cut. I've asked politely from my live aboard neighbors if they see something wrong with my boat, please board it and investigate, loose halyards included. They don't need to hear it for a week, waiting for my return on Fri.
They are there every day and I'm not, I see liveaboards as a huge security asset.

Re: Slapping Halyards

So is the new advice to tape a dog to my neighbors halyard?

After a hour of the line slapping I would guess the dog would stop barking and then become a bumper and weight.

Re: Slapping Halyards

My halyards are secured to stantions. The clevis may rattle on occasion but no banging can happen. The lazyjacks are more difficult to keep quiet. Bungies and more bungies. Usually the loudest noise from my boat is my orbital sander and shop vac.....or me laughing at a CF post.
