I prefer the bag that hangs by the stay to the sausage bag. I found the sausage bag always in the way when the sails were down. The other kind lifts up and out of the way. The sausage bag also traps a lot of dirt and grime on the deck instead of letting it wash over the side.

There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
Shakespeare, Julius Caesar IV, iii, 217
