Well I don't use anything, because on my mooring the rope joins the chain about 3 feet below the point where I cleat off, so I can guess it closely enough, but if you want something permanent why don't you get some red whipping twine and whip a length of about 20mm?

I'm asking because aside from the length, I find it convenient to have an obvious way to differentiate between port and stbd lines.
In fact, sometimes it happens that the dock hand gives you the wrong one.
Though actually that is more of a problem if you have fin stabs, because by crossing the line under the hull you risk to pinch it between the fin and the hull.
Which makes for an interesting situation, the next time you're leaving your berth...
