...terminating at or near the mainmast. For organized storage
of this line jungle, cleats
are just ok, but never enough of them, too small, and I don't like drilling into mast
or booms for this task. I remember that someone sold a large "mast nylon pocket-like storage
thing" that was secured near the base of the mast
by Velcro or buckles, drained well, and into which all sorts of line might be pushed into the several pockets that were available.
Was I dreaming? How do the smart sailors out there organize six or more lines near the mast in a bullet-proof manner (for those 2 am second reef sessions)?
