Ideas for stowing gear, sails, and crew while underway

I'm looking for some good ideas to keep things where I put them. I don't currently have cushions and when I put something on the berths, it usually slides right off. I'm thinking of making some lee cloths but wanted to use a mesh material for some "breathing" "quick drying" qualities. Any suggestions?

Anyone have any pictures of how they organize things below to keep them easy to find with out them being in the way?

Thanks.

PS - here's a link to the layout, I have the 25' model.

Smile gear

Hey, forgot to?? I found small gear hammocks in all the marine stores and catalogues. They are different lengths, Install with small hooks, I have a couple of 6 footers, great for all kinds of stuff that normally flies around the cabin.. Red

No photos, but a couple of suggestions.

1) Scan the layout of the boat and create a stowage plan or plans. Use different plans for tools, safety gear, sails, provisioning stowage, etc. if necessary.

2) You can use an address with the location of various items.
