stern mooring lines

I keep all my mooring lines rigged when sailing, so that they are to hand should I need them. The stern ones have always been a bit unsatisfactory, getting in the way, getting tangled, or getting cross the boat somehow, which I never expect. I have now rigged a single, central cleat, screwed to the face of the mizzen support, with a single, longer stern line hung from it. The idea is that I can use it either side. It should be out of the way, behind the tiller. A concern is that if it came loose, it could drop down straight into the motor well. As always, seatime will test it out
