We're relatively new sailors
and are looking for some advice
We have a 27' Hunter
, moored at Newport
. Last night we went out there, it was windy, about 17 mph gusting to about 30.
We have 2 lines on the bow, one to a piling, one to a cleat on a finger pier, a spring line and two stern lines, both going to cleats
. The line is 3/8" twisted nylon.
All the lines were checked last night before we went to bed
, the boat
was being tossed around quite a bit but all looked fine.
This morning our line was chafed through in the snubber. (Please see pic).
So the question is, have we threaded the snubber incorrectly? The line goes through an "S" at the end and we notice part of it is quite sharp where the rope
goes through. The brand of snubber is Sea Dog Line Snubber.
Any help or advice
would be greatly appreciated.
