Anchor storage

Hello all!
Could anyone advise as to what the best method is of storing/securing the anchor aboard my 6.5m? At the moment it lies in a milk crate at the back which is not ideal. There is a in-deck compartment ahead of the console which I am not keen to use for fear of dents or holes in the hull caused by continuous bouncing of the anchor, however if I could solve the problem of the anchor moving it would be much neater.

Any constructive advice would be much appreciated.

Sean

A few rubber car mats in the bottom of the anchor locker should do the trick.
To stop it moving i packed mine on its own rope and squished in a few fenders.

I cut out to shape some deck matting and put that inside the anchor locker. Worked fine. Same as simmons0, I put a couple of fenders in as well.

cut out a nice neat shape in thick polysterene perhaps? the size and amount of it we get in my job unpacking massive screens and printers - okay it wont last for ever but it could look neat and will be easy to work with once youve done it

Sounds like a good idea, but I fear probably wouldn't last long enough under the conditions.
