Anchor Storage

I am sure I have asked this before, but I can't find my original post and I am still stuck for answers.

I need a safe, reliable anchor storage system.. I have tried buckets and trugs but they have all split after a few trips.

I tried wrapping the anchor in cloths but it would bounce out.

I tried rubber matting stuck down but didn't like the idea that I wouldn't see any damage that happened, and I didn't think it was thick enough.

I thought I had finally got a system that worked. I used some pipe to hold the anchor.

but after the Anglesey trip this has smashed it's self to bits.

So I need to calm my driving and stop trying to get the prop out the water or find another storage solution.

I think thick rubber matting will be my only option, but has anyone got any other good idea's?

Maybe an Anchor with no moving parts

50lt blue plastic barrel, cut the top off and fit some rope handles. Cheap/free and indestructible. Bolt a traffic cone inside with the top cut off and it makes a good stowing place for anchor and chain with the rope coiled around the outside of the cone yet still inside the barrel. Works a treat and the rope just reels out when you deploy the anchor.

I just use a web strap to hold the anchor down in the anchor locker when it's rough, works well so far

My issue isn't the moving parts, it's the weight smashing the hull. The delta will just do the same.

Like this idea - but don't think I can get it through the anchor locker door and I can't remove the locker to install something as the tubes are bonded onto it.

Appropriate sized boat fender, chop the top off and voila, one anchor storage tube.

I had this issue a few years ago, despite having an anchor locker in the bow of the RIB the Anchor and chain bounced about inside it and I was afraid it would seriously damage the inside of the hull.

So I welded up the bracket in the attached images to hold it inside the locker.

It's very easy to stow, I just flake the Warp and chain into the bottom of the locker then slide the anchor into it's bracket. Putting the lid on holds it in place.
