I put one under the deck-stepped mast on my Catalina 25 a few years ago, and I love it. In addition to organizing halyards, it's useful for securing other lines, like Cunningham and a turning block for the mainsail downhaul. I also use some of its holes to neaten up the loops of wire for VHF antenna and steaming/anchor lights that enter the mast.
I figure that any time I can avoid putting another hole in the deck, it's a Good Thing.
