2 sheets, 1 winch

I added another furler but we have just one winch per side. There is no place for another winch. So far I have the super lazy sheets (?) coiled and lashed to the lifelines near the cockpit. The lead to the sheet winch changes sometimes for the jib so it runs both inside the stays and outside of them. I have snatch blocks for the sheets on the track. It's not that big of a deal to open them up and change the lines but it is a bit of a bother to change everything over and I'm really disinclined to do it at night. I'm not sure there is anything to be done but what do others do?

Re: 2 sheets, 1 winch

One option is to tie off the non-working sheet to a nearby cleat. If no cleat is handy, then you'll need to install one.
