Braided is a little more forgiving I think. That gets coiled in figure eights though. No twist.
3 strand..... coil in left hand, grab a length in your right hand and as you go to coil it, roll the top of the line over with your right thumb and fore finger. You will be coiling clockwise.
You will still see it try to bunch up so every now and then, twirl the free part of the line with your right hand in a clockwise direction..... Works even better if you can lay out the line total length.
I think I have it right.... It is dark and I am not going outside to confirm or disprove this.
If you are left handed, sorry, you are on your own.
Each boat should come equipped with one right-handed person and one left-handed person.
