Steve Bell s/y Dusk SM378
Hi All .
An alternative to the noodle is to go to your local plumbing store and purchase copper pipe insulation.
These are the same as a noodle but with a hole already through it, the material also seemed more dense than a common swiming pool noodle.
We did this on our previous boat and puy some light chain through the insualtion for weight.
I havent tried it on Dusk yet but will get around to it sometime in the future but it worked on our previous yacht although not a 100% it certainly reduced the slapping.
