My genoa blocks are attached to the toe rail so I agree that the rail can take considerable lateral and horizontal forces.

For mooring, I bought stainless steel caribiners to attach the spring lines to. I just leave them hanging from the toe rail and attach the lines just prior to docking. Makes it easy to change their locations depending on the dock cleat locations.
