The balance point seemed to us to be a few feet abaft the mid ships cleat.
You can see it below by the forward gate stanchion:
We found that the t track mounted Schaefer cleats worked great for docking. And as they're adjustable, you can fine tune that balance point.
There was a great article by Evans Starzinger, “Short-handed Docking Made Easier,” Cruising World, July 2007, that I'd recommend.
