Re: To store halyards or leave on mast?
I also live in MA, but keep my boat in RI. Every year I attach one messenger line to all of my halyards, and run them up the mast. In the spring, I carefully pull them back down.
The advantage is that I am preventing UV damage on all but the ends of the line. If necessary, I can splice a new eye in the halyards.
Regarding the roller furling line; I remove it and store it with the jib sheets in the V berth.
