Anchor rode attachment

I have hurricane 530 (20 ft). I have an anchor set up but I am trying to come up with a way to fasten it to the boat. The bitter end is easy, there is a spot to attach it in the front locker. But I am trying to find a place to tie off the anchor line when I have enough line out. There are no cleats anywhere and no other obvious locations at the bow of the boat. A friend suggested I mount a cleat, which would work but I am wondering if others have any bright ideas. I will attach a couple photos that might help the discussion.Click image for larger version

Tie your painter off to it so the anchor load goes direct to the hull rather than over the top of your tubes.

This is how you do it. Let the low point bow eye take the load on the painter. This is a better loading point in a swell or chop. Secure the slack anchor line to anything inside the boat - use it to recover the painter and then the anchor.

This makes sense of course but what I am scratching my head about is how to tie off to the low point bow eye. I am pretty sure it is too far to reach. And now you can let me in on what I am missing from the equation! Many thanks for the help.

Like the others have said, leave your painter permanently attached to the bow eye. You then attach your anchor line to the painter.

It's very simple, but might need a picture to make it clearer. Can anyone oblige?

this is how i do it not the best of drawings.
bow line from boat hull with a carabina on [locking]
put anchor down create a loop pull slack rope out of bucket through loop to create another loop put carabina through and lock throw overboard. retrieve by pulling on slack rope until carabina come back into the boat,
just pull on the slack rope and pull loop out.
i keep the carabina on until the anchor is back aboard.
forgot to say twist first loop it locks up better not easy for me to draw,
cheers

We have a Carbine hook on the end of the painter, Then when you drop anchor you can easily tie a loop in the anchor line and clip it on the end of the painter. If you are using decent Anchor Plait then its easy enough afterwards to untie the loop.
