bow bag for anchor storage

trying to solve my anchor storage issue, thought a small bow bag might do it.
pref black . top access so I can get the anchor out quickly

anyone got one or recommend where to get one?

climbing rope bags are good, some have mesh liners for drainage and drawstring on the top, try some climbing gear websites

I use one of these tied to to D rings at the bow....

I drill a few holes out at the base for drainage.

I've been through several bags on my bombard. The weight of anything in there rips all the stitching out if it's hanging from the top.....

The only way to avoid this is I think to have the button of the bag sitting on deck carrying the weight....or only go out on flat calm days...hmm.....

I have a black bow bag with new zip fitted.

Worth a look if you are near me.

Take 12 or it

I am between Salisbury and Southampton

Interested?

PS - You really need to look rather than use a photo.

Agree, we use those flexi buckets, sometimes called 'Goriller' ? buckets for stowing line & shot-weights. Drill drainage holes in bottom. Cost only a few quid from diy stores. Very flexible too!

I need to be able to see it somehow, do you have a pic or is their one on the makers website?

I agree Pete it needs to be on the floor.
