Anchor locker moulding - need to find a supplier

I've been asked by a client to find a someone who can supply a some sort of box which can be fixed to the deck at the bow on a 4m RIB which can be used as an anchor locker.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks

Rogue Wave had one made for a Searider he sold, I'm sure if you PM him he'll point you in the right direction....

I've also seen various plastic moulded tool boxes/ chests from Wickes etc used (screw to the deck from the inside and add a couple of drain holes).

Motor cycle top boxes make good ones especially grp ones and they have a lock on them .

i have 2 plastic tool boxes with 2 differing lengths of line depending what i am doing ,
its only a few seconds job to unscew with stainless butterfly screws to swap the box over and i can just get 40 meters of line and Bruce anchor and chain inside .

Tim , good to see you back on here. The Avon I just had used another boats 'properly' made one (another Avon I am sure) bonded in . If anyone has a trashed old hull about is it an option to butcher that & you can then make as many as you want ( if you make a plug from the old one)
