+1 On the very rare occasions I leave the boat unattended afloat, I use 2 lines; the painter from the bow eye & a second longer mooring rope from the deck cleat, usually to a different part of the mooring in-case the first bit lets go.

If you do make sure you include a nylon thimble.

Best Knot.

Clove hitches are pretty useful too, especially if tying up to a rope/runner as it's less likely to slide along.

Round turn & two half hitches for securing to a spar, use a bowline for securing to a ring or rope loop.

22 years in the navy & 30-odd years of sailing puts me in a reasonable position to guess correctly!

Why not use three strand rope and attach the painter with a spliced loop around the u bolt, then trim the painter so it cannot reach the prop, and then back splice the loose end as well.
