Mine too; I've never had one go over either.

The worry is mainly that after a "stuffing" type situation, one might get washed over and missed in the confusion. If running with drain socks down (as I sometimes used to) there was the potential for a loose hank to get washed down and left flapping beside the prop.

My biggest concern was that careless crew would leave an end or coil on the tube... If they were tied up and visible, there was nothing to fret about. It looked more "Bristol fashion" too

Fair point - now I think about I have had one go out through the elephants trunk on the searider. Nowhere to stow anything on there though!

Coil it, leaving about a coil's worth free at the attatched end. Then wrap the attatched end round the coils three or four times (starting at the coil side), pass a loop of the rope that is left between what you have just done and the frame / cleat , pull it through, and loop it over the top of the hank. Then pull tight.

Rope is now a neat coil suspended by the fixed end. after a few attempts, you'll find an optimal coil size & free rope length to keep it neatly off the floor.

If that didn't make sense, look for halliard stowage / management for sailing boats on your favourite search engine - there are dozens of websites out there with pictures.

Beat me to it. Yes, I think you described a buntline hitch. Anyway That's what I do and then stuff the coil into a plastic bucket in the corner. I've never had any of the several ropes I stow like that fall out - but then I'm a bit wimpish and don't go out in rough weather.
