Now I read it again I realise I did not express myself clearly in my posting.

What I really meant is that the dock line comes directly to its final point of attachment on the yacht without touching any other part of the boat on the way (fairleads, rollers, ...) if it is supposed to stay there for any length of time.

In calm weather and for a short time I may use fairleads etc.
