If therewas tension on that line you would still have trouble uncleating it. Lines should always be cleated onboard in the standard manner so they can always be released or adjusted even when there is a strain on them. The only exception to this I see is if you are at your own dock and have permantly made up and adjusted lines, in that case putting the end with the loop aboard and dropped over the cleat and double 180 and placed over the horns again if you like, would be ok, IMHO..Rick
