Boat Dock Stupid!!!!!!!!

I sat for 30 minutes watching the boat bob up and down and then tied up. I put all of the ropes and buoys in just the perfect spot___ NOT! (f---, s--- d-----)

Now I need your help I really want this to be possibly my last boat and I wanted it to stay cherry I am attaching a pic of the blemishes. I am in Dallas and I need someone to get this back to new. Anybody have any ideas? The dock scratches of course are located only in the blue paint so it is very visible and stretches down the side by about 5 feet. They are not just scratches on the surface they are dug in pretty deep (It was that d--- old Issac that did the deed)

Ok now that addresses the scratches that need to be fixed. Now I need to know how I can avoid this in the future?????? Is there a portable boat flexible strap?

I added vertical 2x4's to my dock and covered them with carpet. As long as you size the ropes correctly, the only part of the boat that will touch the dock is the rub rail (and that is what a rub rail is for).

This has worked for me for the last 30 years and the railing on the dock is a nice plus.

Is that paint or gel coat? It looks like paint.

The best way to prevent that is to avoid contact with the dock using whips or having a dock finger on both sides of the boat. When that's not possible, I just use Large fenders placed in the best locations.

I'm on a huge part of the Ohio River. Barges, 60 foot cruisers, I'm talking 3-4 foot waves. We use upright posts as pictures above reduce the risk of the boat every getting under the dock. Spring lines are a necessity. Large upright bumpers. Wish I had a good pic.

Snork: This happened on family holiday at a rental property, so I needed something portable. Ever see anything portable?

Traxx: I had four West marine 36" bumpers (attached to the boat) I put two of them together in two locations then sat in the rain and watched the waves and adjusted as needed. I think some monsters must have come in and pulled the bumpers above the dock hit the boat then as the night wore on the dropped back in place.

Tph: Not sure I thought everything was gel coat? Lack of education for me. I don't know the difference.

Snork: I will TMC and get Ted's number. Have you had work done with him before?
