How short is too short

32s5 Bene on a mooring the mooring lines (2) could go over the anchor rollers then to the deck cleats about 3' back or in little notches on the side of the stem fitting that has a little mini roller too.

I had the mooring lines through the notches to the cleats with the loop through the center of the cleat then folded over. It looked good to me.
The owner of the boat just put a 1" dock line through the mooring lines so the mooring lines didn't get on the boat.

I don't know if she thought the mooring lines were too short or she was worried about the scum on the lines.

How short is too short for mooring lines?
