Just stuff the line into the drum. Its calling "stacking" and as long as you don't reach in a grab a mass of it and shift it around it will come back out of the drum just like it went in. Don't coil it.

When I had a SIB I used a 5 gallon bucket to store my anchor rode in. The boat end I had a carabiner on that clipped to the ropes along the tubes. Then I stuffed the remaining line in the bucket and put the anchor on top. Worked great.

Soft car rooftop bag secured in the bow works nice for all that junk normally jumping on the floor. And cost much less than designed for boats.

I've always heard that called flaking or faking.
