i some times daisy chain it or sometimes just fake it down into a bucket or canvas bag ,depends on what i am going to do ,over the years i have tryed just about eveything there is from using it wrapped around a spool to wrapping it around and between large cleats each side of the bow ,best for me is the fake down into a bag .,,,,,,,pics of bag /reel ,and daisy chain /sennit or drummers knot, even when we are crab potting we just fake the ropes down in to a barrall and we never have any tangles,even when i used to long line we would just drop it into an cheap plastic water tank and they were nearly 1/4 mile long,

I've seen both terms used interchangeably.

I flake the line into the locker as it's pulled, or alternatively (especially when diving alone) pile the line on deck, then flake it in after everything is up. Rarely have a problem with it feeding out. On the smaller boat, I used a milk crate to store the rode; the new boat has a dedicated locker.

Trying to get a coiled line to pay out evenly rarely worked for me.

i thought that faking is just stuffing it in a bag or bucket and flaking is where it is laid out proper longways ,,or to use the term flaked out if someone faints and is laid out , eg on deck of a ship , eg like cheesing a rope into a coil ,,,,, where i come from we say dinner time others call it lunch time ,,either way you still get some thing to flaking eat .lol,,,,matter of intrest anyone remember flaking boxes used to reload rocket lines after they had been fired ,it was a box with long spikes where the line was wrapped around ,then when it was all wrapped you tipped it upsidedown removed the box and the line was all perfectly flaked ,mart

All pretty infomative however after a serious session of wave jumping whether flaked, faked wrapped or coiled its still going to be a fecking mess.

This Nylon webbing reel as mentioned by JK sounds interesting, anyone know more?

Mart's PVC bag with the rope in works well as long as you put it in carefully. Our tow rope is in the same sort of bag and it pays out fine.

Something isn't right. You have the same anchor locker as I do, my anchor line always comes out as it went in.

What- Size, length and type of warp are you using?
Type and size of anchor?
Length and size of chain?
