I use a small cordura sports bag with a hard PVC base insert (a section cut from a can or drum will work well). It holds all that stuff and I can clip the handles onto the safety line or painter. That keeps it where I want it and means that there is some weight up front at all times.

Lucky for me I have a ready made Anchor box that came with the y boat but if I just want a quick runabout or completely deflate and transport the boat in the back of the car fror space saving I use either a smaller old orange plastic tool box or just a bag or small bucket that fits a Bruce anchor & 40 mtrs of line that goes right up in the bow .

Hi topspeed

I keep the anchors in the side compartment of the "fishbox furniture" that I made.

I have bruce type anchor with 7 meters of chain and around 70 ft of rope wound on an old electrical cable extension reel that I found in a skip. It keeps everything tidy and didnít cost a penny.

I also keep a grapnel anchor in there which is tied to the end on my painter. That way I can land and stick the grapnel onto the beach to stop the SIB floating away.

There are two d-rings in the front to give redundancy for the anchor line. A simple Y harness with a carabiner serves for the boat connection. My Hooker fits great in a milk crate and it holds 320 feet of line, plus the 14 feet of chain. The line gets flaked into place. Since the crate is vented it drains and dries the line in a reasonable amount of time. The end of the rope is clipped to the crate so it can be quickly attached to a buoy and thrown overboard if needed. The crate itself is now bungeed down for quick removal when recovering over a beach. It works excellent for me...

Kept the anchor and chain in an army surplus plastic weapons case strapped to the fuel can. Worked a treat.

I used to use a milk crate as Pete shows above. Same color and everything.
