I use when singlehanding, put a dock line on a stern cleat, use the hook to run the line thru a dock cleat and tie it off on the stern cleat. Put the out side engine in gear to bring the boat in against the dock and tie off the mid cleat. Works better than trying to lasso the dock cleat.

I don't like making plans for the day because the word "premeditated" gets thrown around in the courtroom.

I can see that this device could work well for us. We have high decks (compared to the docks we use) and the swim step is not really a safe place at this time to deploy the Admiral. With this device she could easily lasso the deck cleat with a line tied to a stern cleat. Then do as River Cruser says above.
