Purchased a Carver 396 Aft Cabin last summer.  Docked in a marina on a dock at end of marina near channel with no boats behind us.  During tide changes or when water is a little rough, hear a loud slapping sound from under the stern from water.   Very annoying when trying to sleep in aft cabin.  Has anyone else had this problem and did you find a way to reduce noise?

Can you dock in the reverse direction? If not, try filling your fuel & water to top levels. Sitting deeper in the water may stop the tide slapping.

Same thing on my boat.  But it only happens when the water direction is just right.  Other than moving to a different slip, we have a dinghy on a lift at the swim platform, and if we lower the dinghy into the water on the rare day we get the slapping, it stops.

If you don't have a dinghy, perhaps you can rig up a rope with some of those swimming pool floats (the kind used to separate the shallow end from the deep end), and drape it across the water behind your stern.  Anything to break up the waves should work.
