I have a large fastening clip on each starboard/port stantion near the cockpit for the halyards. I only need to access them when raising or lowering so that works well. As for the sheets I tend to like Dogs' method. I have those Davis Sticky Bags with the three suction cups, a bag for each jib sheet and one for the main sheet. I also find I need to have them uncoil freely and they do slide right back out of those bags with little or no tangling after I feed them in. The bags keep the spagehtie of lines out of my feet and keep them contained where they don't get wrapped around my legs or the binnacle. I like the Davis bags so much that I bought some extra ones that have multiple pockets to put other stuff in at the cockpit, keeps everything contained and leaves nothing to roll all over the cockpit during excesive heels, even keep my water bottles in them. West marine carries them and I have used them for years with complete satisfaction.
Another reason I like the Davis Sticky Bags is that they come in Pacific Blue to match all my other canvas accessories, yes I am a bit fanatical about color coordination, even my lines are variations of white and blue as is my boat.
