how to store a spare standing rigging shroud?

I have a spare shroud for my yacht, and it is thick enough, and long enough that it will replace most every shroud in case of emergency.
but where and how can i store it?
i really do not want to keep it coiled on the foredeck.

I can just fit a coiled shroud under the main cabin sole. But before next offshore trip I'll have some spare dyneema or similar, much easier to handle.

I have a couple of 1/4" shrouds stored coiled in the chain locker.

They fit pretty easily ahead of the chain.

Use a piece of amsteel (or dynamee) and some cable (not hose) clamps. More flexible, easier to work with, strong as hell.

If I ever have a chain plate rip out I feel pretty comfy that if the stick stays up long enough I could cable clamp the wire into a U at the bottom, and then truckers hitch amsteel to the hull in some capacity (depending on where the break is).

3/8" is more than you need. 5/16" would be fine for an emergency shroud.

I have a inner forestay (solent) that's Amsteel, but I also have a replacement in stainless incase a hank wears through the Amsteel, and that is just coiled in a lazarette.
