Use the starboard cleat for the port line and vice versa.

Can't do that, finger is much shorter than boat.

OCMD has it right, cross you lines on the bow and stern.

Ha ha! Nope.... it's actually pretty common around here for bows to stick out. Our system seems to be doing well, the lines have relaxed a bit so I reset a few tonite but it's sitting in the center ok.

To cut the rope a nylon rope, use electrical tape and wrap the rope where you want it cut.  Then use a pair of wire cutters (side cutters) and cut the rope in the middle of the tape.  Next use a lighter (I prefer a propane torch) and melt the ends.  Use some leather gloves and roll the end in your hands then remove the electrical tape.
