Cockpit line organization

What are you using to contain lines in the cockpit -- the sheets, halyards, etc. that end up underfoot?

I don't care for the option of just throwing the lines down the companionway into the cabin since they are then underfoot of the admiral.

I have seen a nice little device on a Beneteau charter boat. I plastic fitting with a loop of cord on the bottom, hook on top. You coil the line, pass the loop of cord through the coil and hook back to the top. The line is contained yet easy/quick to get to.

I haven't been able to find them searching around...but then I don't know what they're called to the search may have been less than perfect.

Thanks in advance.

I use something called a HandyHanger. Got them from sailcare.com. Sounds something like what you are describing.

My husband and I have both looked for the same thing (was the charter boat Moorings by any chance?).

We actually found a pretty close match to those hooks at our local boat yard. For the life of me I can't remember the name on the package. My husband thinks it might be Ronstan, I think it's Starsomething.

I'll check this weekend to see if we still have the packaging.

Thanks folks.

Yes, the charter boat was a Moorings boat.

The Handi-Hanger looks like a better design, will be oredering a few.

I find modified canvas shoe bags to be very handy.

I think I have 5 sections on-board, with 3-4 pockets each place.

If you are coiling the lines properly a simple small cleat or two will suffice. Mount them along side the companionway and align them vertically.

I personally like sheet bags over the handi hangers, since the lines can usually run free right out of the bag, and don't need user intervention like the handi-hangers do.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The Ronstan Utility Hangers are avaiable from the Sailnet store. I've used them for years. Great size and one-hand "operation"
