My current starboard deck organiser has 5 lines running through it (jib halyard, kite halyard, boom vang, outhaul, reef).  I've recently added a second main halyard and need to run that back to the cockpit as well.

Here's my current set up:

I could replace the entire unit with a 2 stack set of three sheaves.  My main concern surrounds the fact that most of these deck organisers these days don't have a bottom to them, plus there is significant curve to the deck in this area, probably necessitating me fabricating a baseplate from PTFE or something.

The other option would be to install a simple bullseye fairlead to the outside of the current deck organiser and run the boom vang through that.  Since the mechanical advantage of this line is so great I think the increased friction of the bullseye fairlead would be of negligible impact.

Any other thoughts are appreciated.
