to comment

What is the issue?
Rough harbour walls and marina cleats can badly chafe mooring warps.

Why address this?
This type of chafe can dramatically reduce the service life of expensive warps.

How to address this?
Have a set of chains available that you may attach to the ends of the mooring warps to prevent this type of chafe.
