I made halyard / sheet holder from bits of hardwood, bungee cord & snubber balls wich cost 3.00 & 2 hours work. They hold my lines in loose coils. Very quick and effective. Can post photo if any interest

We have one winch mounted on the starboard cockpit bulkhead which is used for the main halyard, jib furling line, fore and aft lines for both reef points, and the topping lift. We have two mesh bags which hold all of those lines except for the main halyard, which is coiled on the adjacent cockpit seat, and the jib furling line, which is coiled on the winch where it is easily removed if we need the winch.
This works well for us, since the only thing we might need to do in a super hurry is blow the main halyard, which is coiled neatly and ready to run free.
