Thats an amazing job Nasher.

Not sue how I will be able to do this though due to the bow seating / lockers? I guess I would have to bolt through both.

If I go down that route a new anchor is needed.

I do like the folding grapnel though, as I only ever stop for a short time and never leave the boat alone.

Steve, not sure on how the Ballistics are constructed, does the deck extend into the anchor locker, or is the base of the anchor locker the inside of the hull?

on our Revenger the deck extends right forward to the bow and the bow eye is inside the anchor locker just above deck height, all I did to have a secure anchor storage was to fix 2 brackets to the deck which I can attach a web strap to, so when it's rough going I can secure the anchor to the deck, but normally the anchor just sits on the rope, this seems to work well even on the Anglesey Cruise last year

ah, all makes sense now, not such an easy solution I guess maybe you need to be looking at something similar to what Nasher has made to take you folding anchor, although I think it may be actually easier to secure a delta type anchor with the problem you have, and as you said previously secure it through the anchor locker into the storage locker to give some stability, if you're looking for someone to do the fabrication for you I can recommend Marine Fabrications in Cannock

Nasher's system seems the best, as I can mount it direct to the bulk head. I have someone who can make me the holder.

First i need the anchor for a made to fit system - Dont think this will fit into the locker though??



Looks like my folding Grapnel will become a spare in a dry box.

I use a flexible plastic gardening waste container, the sort you can buy at B and Q, lots of different sizes available, they last a few years. I simply coil rope in bottom then chain then anchor sits on top. A simple hole in each side near the top of about 8mm and I thread some flexible cord through and tie together, sits nicely in bow and has never bounced out etc.

This style of container?



I only ever get a few trips until it goes brittle and then just splits or disintegrates.

I even used two together for more strength, but they just split.
