Yes, sometimes that slap is annoying, sometimes it doesn't happen. Sometimes it even happens in a marina slip. You might try running a fan or quiet music to cover up the sound.


We've gotten used to it.
Like Wes, I've gotten used to it over the years. Very rarely is it bothersome to me. Ear plugs would work as well.

Wave slap is less annoying that a spouse that snores. Changing a boat is slightly less expensive that changing a spouse so there are normally other ways to deal with the issue.

OTOH, if you want a new boat anyway then use wave slap as a great excuse to shopping!
