How to stow lug sail while rowing? Northeaster Dory

Hello all,

Do any lug-life sailers out there have a good suggestion for how to best stow the sail while rowing?  I find it gets cramped with the sail lowered and the oars out and a couple of adults on board my Northeaster Dory.  Would it be unwieldy to somehow bundle up the sail and spars and then hoist it overheard using the halyard?

Thanks a bunch!
