organizing bitter ends of sheets and halyards

On my previous sailboat all my control sheets and halyards were lead aft to cockpit. The bitter ends were coiled and tied up to a home made organizer on the bulkhead directly aft of the wenchs mounted on the cabintop.

I recently purchased a couple of those organizer bags with the sticky suction cup that mount to the bulkhead and all lines can drop into this bag. I hate it cuz it just feels like a dis-organized junk drawer for all the lines coming aft. If I pull (1) out then I wind up pulling another out with it. Short of making another homemade version of my previous "Line Hanger / organizer" I'm curious if anyone has seen a product or products that allow me to coil the bitter ends of these lines and hang each one individually on the cockpit bulkhead. I'm thinking I need to be able to hang a minimum of (3) coiled lines on both port and stbd sides.

Sometimes I think I ask too many dumb questions on this forum but I sure like the answers I get.

Re: organizing bitter ends of sheets and halyards

There are no dumb questions. The only lines I have on the cabin top as you described are the reefing lines, the main sheet, and the main sheet traveller lines. The traveller lines are short enough to just toss under the dodger, the main sheet is dragged out on the starboard cockpit seat where I can get at it, so the only lines needing stowing might be the reefing lines, but in settled weather they are just tossed under the dodger also because I only will use them running free when I raise the main, ( once the main is up the reefing lines are quite short) and I pull them back in after I drop the main.( now they are long and take up space but I'm not sailing anymore)
I thought the bag thing would be helpful but as you indicated, only one line to a bag. So my answer is the dumb reply, I can't think of a better way, nor have I seen one.

How did the wenchs feel about being mounted on the cabintop?
Coiled and tied yet?

Re: organizing bitter ends of sheets and halyards

Keith,

We added a cross member to our dodger for coiling reefing lines. Maybe more effort than you're looking for but it has worked well for us. You can see a shot of it on our boat page of our website. (sailnet won't let me post a link since I am not an active user of this site)
