Bow line is tied off at the top, down through a single block, up to a single top block and then runs toward the rear.
Stern line is tied to the top, down around a single block, back up around a double block. The other side of the double block guides the bow line back.
You end up with two lines in your hand to lift the boat level or you can pull either one to angle the boat.
You can use a one piece line if you bring the bow line back and then kind of reverse thread the stern lift but you still end up with two lines in your lifting hand.
Hard to explain but mine is still working after all these years.
