Interesting solution. I've never had that problem though. My common annoying sound at mooring is my bow burgee and metal clips rubbing at night!

The solution to that is the cover that comes on an umbrella. Wrap the burgee around the pole and slip the cover on. My wife calls it a burgee condom.

Maybe that problem happens with no wind or current. Every time I'm on a mooring, the mooring lines to the boat stay taunt and the boat dances around the mooring.

Probably just jinxed myself for my next night on a mooring.

Agree on the burgee. With a bit of wind, the burgee flapping noise is transmitted via the bow rail into the structure of the hull and reverberates around our heads as we sleep in the forward cabin. There have been more than a few nights when I've gotten out of my bunk and gone up on deck to remove the burgee. Not a pretty sight during a full moon.

Good idea. I was just thinking about having a canvas cover made when I replace all the canvas on the boat (a year overdo at this point).

Lots of quiet nights here in Washington in the summer. Note the solution was for the style of mooring buoy used by Washington State Parks. The buoys have a recessed ring which won't hit the hull, but is a pain to grab. It also has a recessed ring around the middle of buoy that the tire tube would fit into nicely. Clever idea, but I don't use the state buoys enough to bother.
