Has anyone used or seen someone using something else besides turtles for the chute storage?
Like a small basket that will fit on the seat. I'm looking to race next week and need a quick diy fix.

I use a folding mesh laundry bag to hold my spinnaker when in storage.  The turtles are good in the boat.  You could use laundry bag, on the floor next to the seat.  The type I am talking about has the wire hoops in it to hold it open.
