I have a large sail locker under the v-berth. Although there is a hatch overhead I wouldn't call it "direct access" from the deck. I have space for whichever headsail isn't on the furler (a 100 and a 135), a staysail, a spinnaker, some odd canvas for awnings, all my tools, and a director's chair. The v-berth opens up to the sides for access and I can launch the spinnaker through the hatch. It works well.

When going offshore I rig the staysail before heading out. I fly the 100 offshore and switch to the 135 for Chesapeake summers. The spinnaker is really the only sail that goes in and out underway.

sail fast and eat well, dave S/V Auspicious
