How many times have you come into a strange marina and toss a line to the professional staff and see then put a line through the hole? Never I'll bet. Figure 8 both ends and you can release quickly with minimum effort if necessary. Only time I ever consider using the hole is when I'm at a base marina and will be leaving the boat for some time unattended.
