Belaying from vessel

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).

That wasn't all that fast. Any experienced dock hand (and most CG crew members) can do that. Just takes a bit of practice.

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.
