    Wife and I anchored in Thunder Bay , near the mouth of Jarvis Inlet last night.

    light winds.

    we noticed a fare amount of water slap noise on the bow, making it hard to sleep in the v-berth.

    Anyone else experience this, and did you come up with a solution?

    Thanks for any input.

    The wave slap is a common problem with most of the NTs.  After our first night at anchor in our 37, my wife said she wouldn’t spend another night on the boat if I didn’t do something about the guy pounding on the hull with a sledge hammer.  The partial fix for the problem was to have the chimes filled in as far forward as possible, without getting into the boot stripe and about 4 foot back from where the water meets the chine.  This has pretty much eliminated the slap except when the waves get choppy out.  I have pics of my chine job if you’d like to see more.
