That is exactly what a lace line is at least as I use the term.

Is a lace line a small diameter line used to close the loop so it con''t pop off?

I generally do a double loop and size the eye so that it a tight fit. I have had boats ride out tropical storms with no incidents. I will sometimes add a lace line.

Tie Up

Looking around many different marinas, I often see boats tied up by merely dropping a looped end of a dock line over a cleat. I have seen a couple of incidences where the loop has partially come off the cleat. It seems to me that this is not a very secure way to tie up a boat, as surge or wakes could cause the loop to free itself from the cleat. What are other''s thoughts on securing one''s boat?
