Genoa sheet routing to high side....

I have a 25 ' Morgan which I solo 90% of the time. I find myself securing my genny sheets on the high side all the time and consequently, tend to be surrounded by alot of sheet tails and tensioned sheets crossing the cockpit.
I was thinking of mounting some blocks on the aftwards coaming behind my position so I could route the sheet coming off the winch to the block and secure near me on the high side./ This would put the sheets under tension out of the way. Ideally I suppose winches there would work, but thought a snap in cheek block (like a side mounted snatch block) would be ideal. I havent found anything like that....any suggestions or different ideas?
