Default Dock line socks?

Where can I get socks or sleeves that go over the lines so they don't constantly rub on the paint. Getting tired of buffing...

Thnks
Ben

Can't say I've ever seen dock line sleeves, only fender covers. What kind of lines are you using? I've always had good luck with Top Knot. Seem to be the softest lines out there.

It sounds like you need to add some line chocks to your boat to coral the lines from moving all over the place.



Quick example from Google above. They do make them as pop ups.

Ohhh the horror!


I'm pretty sure Top Knot makes the socks. Rare Breed had them on it's lines. (Trying to find a pic)

I didn't see these on my first pass through Top Knot's site but if you scroll down on this page you will see chaffe guards. Might just be what you are looking for, Ben.
