Anyone run their lines to the cockpit on the Spirit 23 poptop

Question is just as it is in the title, anyone manage to route their lines back to the cockpit in a clean way? There isn't a lot of room between the handrails and pop top so wondering if anyone has done it. Here is a pic (that is the vang line laying there now).

There is really only room for one line. I suppose I could stack a line organizer or some such but just curious if anyone has done anything different.

I am planning on doing this going to stack some blocks so I can run the main halyard and the head halyard back to some clutches , I have already added a deck organizer plate under my mast .

My lines are run back. 1 on each side, if you look under the pop top fwd corner there is room for a halyard under it. A pulley just forward of it, then it runs back to a rope lock just fwd of the cockpit on each side of the roof.

Windyway, have you got any pics of that? Looked through some of the other threads but I couldn't find any that showed that.

Lines can be run aft on most any boat
this guy did a nice job of how he did it. And it looks like a pop top boat too. You may want to thank him for putting it out there on the net

Nope no pictures, the mast has to be raised for that & the lines in place. I'm sailing next week maybe then.

Those are beautifully run lines. I had the same idea in mind for mine

Wow Denise, thanks for finding that. That is definitely tighter than mine and I don't plan to run all of those lines so it should be easier for me.

Re: Anyone run their lines to the cockpit on the Spirit 23 poptop

Your welcome Main halyard, main down-haul Jib halyard and jib down-haul should be all you need on a 20 something boat. I had a Hunter 23 before my Oday 30. First thing we did was get roller furling on the genoa.
Good luck!
