No cranes for this kid. I'll motor 3-hours to the nearest travel lift. Gotta watch that video again.

So we put the boat in the water today...

Looks like they fastened the lifting lines to 4 deck cleats... and probably now wonder why the hull-to-deck joint is leaking

See it sometimes in our marina too, but IMO there is just no need to take that risk!
Our boat club has no way to get on/off the boat at water level. The sling lift ramps are too high. You need to stand on the boat until it's lifted about 4' where the deck is level with the pavement, then the sling lift pulls over to where you can step off the bow or stern onto the pavement. Then the boat is lifted the rest of the way up.

Are you saying that nobody else does it this way?

Absolutely. Every one of those disasters I've seen has happened with a crane. I've never seen film of a travel lift wrecking a boat - Having said that, I imagine it has happened and now we'll have film at 11.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

I am going to say that Hull to deck joint leaking is probably the least of their concerns now
