I wasn't sure if you were still asking, as I did see it in one of his videos at some point. Just in case, they are for tying to shore in remote places.

As Minnewaska says, those are for running lines ashore, to tie off in tight/protected anchorages... They're a virtual necessity in high-latitude cruising grounds like Tierra del Fuego, and the Antarctic...
