Iím trying to get back to a video where a woman patroller ,in Florida I believe,arrives from a mission and ties up the small Boston Whaler(?) by belaying figure of 8ís from the craft (not the Coast Guard ,some association).
And it's not a proper cleat hitch either, it's just a mess of loops and half hitches. I'd tell her to come back and tie it properly.
The "cowboy cleat hitch" as I call it is a crowd pleaser trick and some dock hands are amazingly good at it (the girl in the video got it done, but was slow and took a few tries), but it aint a proper cleat hitch...or course neither is most of the spaghetti you see on dock cleats.
