If I am reading this correctly you can get a mid cleated line onto an windward piling to stop contact anywhere else but the problem then becomes the wave action? If that is the case take a 4 foot piece of 2x8 or pvc pipe and lash it to two fendrs, hang over the windward side of your boat with the fenders against your hull and the 2x8 riding the waves up and down against the piling. This should allow you to securely pull your boat against the center piling (or finger pier) to windward without worrying about the waves. Your boat should not pivot with a line lead from a center cleat around a piling and back to the helm and secured.

Good description but man would a picture be nice :-)
