I'm looking for advice
on what to place between a davit and the tube of my Hypalon RIB
to limit chafe during bouncy coastal passages.
When stowed the dinghy's tube rests against one davit. I can use various diagonal lines to limit but not completely eliminate the dinghy's motion against the davit. So I'm wondering what others have used to prevent tube damage/wear in such situations? A fender
wouldn't balance well in the gap and would be too thick. I'm thinking of some kind of fabric
or neoprene maybe???
FYI, here is a photo
of the boat's very stout davits
with the RIB
Thanks for any advice
