I guess I should downsize compared to what I'm used to, what thickness of rope do people use?

Don't go for too thin - you need to pull it in with cold wet hands and a load on it.

Kaman, you carry a lot of stuff on your Honwave!!!
If you give Chris at Henshaws a ring....you may well be surprised how reasonable a custom made to measure Hyperlon bag in the colour of your choice would be

Anchor locker

Another way of stowing lots of rope & making it more manageable & tangle free in a small sib is to use a " Drummers plait " that was supposedly used by early mountaineers . made by looping itself repeatedly , when needed it can be just pulled out on itself .
Both ropes are 35 meters long instead of a coil using dozens of strands looping it using a drummers plait makes it down to much less (9 in this case) .

Both ropes are 35 meters long , using the Drummer plait makes it much more manageable , just pullout what you need & takes a few moments to make back up again .

It will but the user interface is not quite obvious.

To search in the app in general (android, but I believe iOS is similar)...

Tap the magnifying glass...
You'll see the second screen, confusingly you need to tap the magnifying glass at the top again.

Or to search for posts by someone. tap a post by that person then the three dots in top right.

Select show author profile. Then in the profile tap the users name in top left. You can then search threads they started or replies theyve posted to others.

Not intuitive but ribnet/social knowledge didn't create the app and it's free so we put up with it!
