Anchor locker

What does anyone use for anchor and rope storage? I've got a Honwave 3.8, I need to stow a small Bruce and some chain and rope.

Hi spark

I made a ply bow dogger put 4 bolts through it about 6 inches high with a plate on top cut out to form a rectangle I wrap the rope around it on the outside which then forms a box put the anchor, chain & buoy inside and tie down. Check my threads some pics of it.

Cheers

Hi there, I'm sure there are many excellent ideas out there; I also have a Honwave 3.8 and use a folding grapnel with chain and warp. To stow it away neatly and yet tidily, I use one of the larger plastic garden trugs! Cheap enough to buy, robust, doesn't fall over and doesn't cause any chaffing etc. to the boat. Easy to lift out with the handles before trailing the boat on the back of the car. Stands flat in the tailgate of the car and contains any water seeping from the warp, also prevents any contamination from stubborn mud deposits to the boat or car interior. Seems to work fine for me, and I am quite fussy about things being just right!!! Good luck.

Anchor locker

I have a purpose built anchor box in my y boat ,, 3.5 sib but depending on what i am doing "trailer or deflating & putting in the back i can remove the larger anchor box & just use a decent no nonsense basic plastic tool box that will just hold 40 metres of rope , 2 metres of chain & a Bruce anchor .
To be quite honest just a heavy duty bag will do or a bucket .

On my 14' SIB, I used a milk crate that was tied to the inside D-rings.

I used to keep my anchor in my bow box but the addition of a spray hood made it difficult to access.
In the 1st pic attached is my stern anchor in a blue heavy duty pvc bag.
It's held onto the grab rope with carabiners.
Easy to remove.
It velcros at the top to keep the contents inside.
I feed the rope into the bag first then the anchor sits on top ready for deployment.
I've got two bags and use them for both anchors as I use the bow box for storage of other boat stuff.
The bag storage method works well for me - takes up very little space.
2nd pic shows the other bag with my bow anchor up in front of the seat.

Cheers for that gent's, I think I'll either make or find a bag that fits best up at the bow.

Kaman, you carry a lot of stuff on your Honwave!!!

Jeff, this app won't let me search your threads, I'll get onto a PC and have a look.

I used a cylindrical plastic munitions case I picked up at the local army surplus, strapped this, with a grapnel and chain in, to the top of the fuel tank. Worked great.
