Agree, lines lead down the companionway. I've raced in many an estuary this way where 20 minutes between tacks is a luxury and stuffing lines into bags or any kind of coiling in this environment is just not feasible.

The only time I've had lines tangle is crewing on a boat where the owner liked to store an outboard motor under the cockpit just below the companionway. After a few tacks, less frequently used lines (eg headsail halyard) would sometimes become tangled around the outboard to everyone's annoyance.
