Interesting video... thanks for the link.
However, the section on the mooring tips shows him tying the lines off to the top lifeline. This is generally a really stupid idea, since the top lifeline will give the fender line a lot of leverage and may damage the stanchions if the fender gets caught under the dock or such. You're generally much better off tying fender lines off to the base of stanchions, which are far less likely to get damaged, since they don't give the fender line a long lever arm.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
