As a result of my trip back from Ribex last week I was wondering if it would practicle for me to flood the anchor locker on the boat if I needed to keep the bow down when heading into sea/ wind.
I know its water tight as it collects rain in bad weather ( not huge amounts) . But I think I could get 40 kg in there if needed ( with a bucket ) and then empty it out when I get to where I am going - leave the achor etc in there and stick the cover back on .
Anyone done this as a one off ever ? To my mind its just like having a ballast tank ? Anyone see any problems with doing it ?
Also a link to this I find intersting for seeing sea state type info off Milford if heading up the Solent across what can be a relatively ' lively' few miles in a SW wind .
