Since we mostly encounter buoys with metal rings that Dave described, we have typically run a single long line through the ring and back to the opposite hawse/cleat. I may try the two line system and see if that works any better.

We also use the Hook & Moor.

Rode out Hurricane Mathew on a mooring buoy last year (not one of my best decisions!)
I used 3 lines, tied individually so no sawing. My neighbor wasn't so lucky and his boat blew into a railroad trestle when the lines parted....You can never be too careful when conditions are bad...

We have just one bow roller, already monopolized by our anchor,so if we pick up a mooring we lift the anchor out of position and stand it on the deck to free up the roller and the run back to the king cleat.
The anchor chain between anchor and windlass gets attached to the pulpit to keep it restrained, using the anchor restraint we have fitted.
Our anchor has a roll bar and is virtually flat on the bottom,it stands well, shank vertical. We put a mat under it to protect the deck.
We`ve done this many times,no problems, but it involves lifting the anchor,and is a 2 person job.

Fella that designed the Hook and Moor must be a very sharp individual, been using mine for just this season, works great. Trying to explain how it works is beyond me, way easier to just do a demo.

We use boat lines. We attack the spliced loops to each bow cleat. We run the bitter end through the mooring pendant and back to the same cleat. We do this on one side to pick up the mooring. Once the single line is tied, we do the same on the other cleat. There is no sawing when both are connected and run back to their respective cleats. This allows us to untie each line and backpull the slack to drop the mooring when we leave.

See the image in Post #4.
