They left the lines banging, action was required! When I came back last last weekend I could tell they had been on the boat, because the line was back to the original banging spot.

Sounds more like a problem than a solution.

There is such a concept as vandalism and private property, and I say this having endured boat noise for quite some time.

First, try the friendly approach ("Ahoy, mate" ... etc.), then the "tie off as example" approach (and don't waste good shock cord on this), and then, ...

Well, ultimately, just move. Bear in mind that fools and unawares are still ubiquitous.

I hate to harp on this, but it is really an "anti-solution" to go aboard another person's yacht to correct an issue that annoys you. You would not be happy if another individual came aboard your yacht to "fix" an issue that annoyed him or her.

The first route is to communicate, and then later, escalate (slowly, of course). Remember, you are not the first person afloat to encounter annoyances.

It's the people who fail to understand that rights come with responsibilities that are the ones who seem to think the Universe exists for them alone.

Re: Slapping Halyards

It is funny, but I know a few people that believe the universe revolves around them that still seem to secure their halyards. There might be an element of moronicism involved in their rude habits.

Re: Slapping Halyards

I have another cunning plan. Let's cross a water-buffalo with a seagull, and teach the offspring to regard masts with slapping halyards as the exclusive breeding tree of this intriguing new species. The pile of droppings will cave in the deck, and the weight of the nest will capsise the boat. Word will quickly get around and this heinous genetic freak will die out almost as fast as the slappy halyards. People with artistic talent and fertile imaginations are invited to sketch their impression of the buffagull.

Buffalogulls won't you come out tonight,
come out tonight, come out tonight,
and dance by the light of the moon.

Re: Slapping Halyards

At the height of the Buffagul infestation, Manly Marina will be the largest source of Buffagulldung since the invention of Parliament. Chandleries will do a roaring trade in Buffagulldung Expediting Systems (really, just shovels, but with a 500% markup 'cos they're "marine"). American coastal marinas will redound with gunfire, the most intense since the Battle of the Philippine Sea.

Re: Slapping Halyards

I was in a slip in Northern Ca. for a few months. The guy next to me had a decrepit fishing runabout that he was "working on". First thing I noticed was the Sears 60's era, 2 pronged battery charger. So I know my zincs were getting cooked. He had a couple of 3' X 6' Formica sheets, covering the docks. One morning when I went down to my boat. I slipped and landed flat on my back. The next time I saw him, I told him about the incident and could he please remove the debris. I got the 30 minute speech of him justifying that since he was a long term renter that he was entitled to do as he wished. That was my only attempt with a one on one to resolve it. I went to the Harbor personnel and complained. They took care of the debris but not the charger.
My point is that if you pay slip rent, I feel the harbor has an obligation the ensure your stay with them is as peaceful as possible and if any other slip holder is bothering you, they should at least address it. Note: The Harbor Master has the right to board a vessel if it is endangering another vessel. He probably also has clearance to tie off halyards and notify the offenders.
In the past when I lived aboard, if I had a clanging halyard next to me. I would un-cleat it, flip it around a spreader and re-cleat it. Most of the time, it was a boat where the owner rarely came to see if his boat was still floating. Other times, I would see the owner and tell him the situation. Most dock mates see my boat with the halyards properly secured, not against the mast. My docklines properly sized, cleated off in a seamanship style and everything stowed. They generally know that I know what I'm doing. Only once was a halyard offender pissed off. An old unkept dock queen that never left the harbor.
