Should be all right either way, as long as you use a suitable clip (snap hook types can actually unsnap themselves) or allow for chafe in the lines, if they're going to be there that long. Or, you could tie into the mooring eye on the ball itself.

This is why most baots always carry odds and ends of extra lines aboard.
