Don't think i've seen a handline used from a UK boat for 40 years!
As with most methods there will be a knack in it how you lay the line down with minimum tangling.
Best method is to wind it on a reel !
Seen a fair few Hobo beer can type outfits used in the freshwater and off piers but you generally have much less line to tangle out then.

Chuckling about the thought of 8 or 10 charter anglers handlines with 2 or 3 hook rigs chucked on the deck !

"While you are at it can you knit me a gill net ?" used to be a favourite remark directed at rod and reel boat tanglers !:)
