We modified the triple lay to put the nozzle in the center of the lay. Basically instead of making the traditional "S" that the triple lay forms, we just ran the nozzle between both hoses. For a while there was the problem of FF's just grabbing the nozzle and taking off leaving a pile of spaghetti at the rig. This way it forced them to grab all the hose and pull it all out. Not so much a problem anymore but we just got into the habit of doing it that way and it's stuck. It also helps keeps the nozzle a little protected and prevents the bail from catching on anything while pulling it out of the speedlays.
A common modified version of the Minuteman load is a 200-foot preconnect with the bottom 100 feet in a flat load and the top 100 feet in a Minuteman. That lets the nozzleman carry the Minuteman while dragging the flat load. When the flat load is completely stretched, the Minuteman still gives you 100 feet of working line past the point where the flat loaded hose ends.
