Actually, a sock may be the rest way to stow the chute.

I was never a fan of squeezers; I flown chutes with an without and found them slow. However, with my current boat, the chute won't fit in the sail locker in the bag, but I can fit it in with the squeezer. So, for me, it is both a squeezer and a skinny sail bag.

Single handed without an autohelm sounds very tough.
