Jib Bag and sheets

I ordered a jib bag online because I am tired of removing my jib/genoa after sailing. Just wondering..those of you who use a jib bag..do you bag your sheets along with the sail or leave them on the deck?

That depends.

If you have more than one headsail, you may wish to keep your sheets out of the bag.

Trick question, if your going to "store" it in the bag (say during the week between weekends) leave the sheets in the bag for UV/elemental protection...

And if you have more than one headsail....you have to unbag and hank/rehank it anyway so change the sheets then...

I usually leave the sheets out and ready go when I know I will be sailing frequently.

If I know I will be away for a while (more than a couple of weeks) I remove the jib, stuff the sheets in the bag and store it all below.

I only use the one headsail so never have to transfer the sheets.

I would not leave the sail in the bag on the foredeck for more than a day, especially if it is damp or rains. Great plan when cruising and using it all the time.

Minnewska...just curious..why not store it in the bag most the time? The mainsail stays on the boom with a cover made of the same material. What's the difference?

The bag won't drain nor ventilate quite the same.

Depends...usually the bag hangs in the air (off the deck) and has a mesh bottom for ventilation (at least mine does...)

Only difference I see is it's flaked and folded forward rather than just flaked before wrapping..

This isn't mine, but a similar design... I also have mesh bottom for ventilation..

Great, but not all do. I also suspect the same gene that dislikes taking it down might also be less diligent in flaking and rolling/folding and better suited to something more like stuffing.

Not saying the bag is a violation of any kind.

I agree with Minne- I use hank on headsails with a foredeck bag also. If I'm sailing daily, I leave it on. If not, I take off the whole bag and just treat it like a sailbag.
I actually have 2 or 3 of the foredeck bags of different sizes, so I just store the jib in the foredeck bag. No, it doesn't save time if I'm changing headsails often, but if I'm not changing headsails or storing it, it's ready to go. To answer your original question, again it depends on how often I'm sailing. If daily, I leave the sheets attached to the sail and run them back to cleats, like many people with roller furling do. If I'm not going out daily, I take them off and store them in my sail locker.
