Lines back to cockpit

Some years ago I bought a double clutch off eBay for Jelly Bean. It sat in the garage until this morning when I finally decided to fit it to Ciao Bella. This will let me lead the topping lift and spinnaker halyard back to the cockpit. The main halyard is on the starboard side and the genoa doesn't need to come back as it is on a roller reefer.
I had been putting this off as I thought I would need one of them fancy deck organiser things which lay flat on the coach roof. Then I saw a picture on the 'Yacht Zephyr' blog showing a triple block feeding into a triple clutch. So this is what I will do, I have put a 'U' bolt through the coach roof in readiness :).
