i 've done it a couple of ways to be honest if you have the room in front of the anchor locker stick it down with sikaflex doesn't move. or put four lacing eyes screwed down to the floor with bungee or ratchet straps holding it down.
if you google horse feeder images there are other sorts D shape or just tray type with handles heavy duty rubber but might mark but this one will stand abuse.

cheers

I used an old fuel container, cut the right shape into which goes the anchor and chain, then the rope into a dry bag which sits on top.

All dropped into the front locker, the chain is heavy enough to stop the tank moving too far, and the tank is heavy enough plastic it spreads all loads should anything move.

I used to store mine in a small bag up front, which led to it hopping around and either hurting people or damaging the boat.

I don't have the option of an anchor locker, and I'd be interested to find out how you guys store your anchors on open RIBs.

Thanks
Screw in some luggage tie downs, and strap the bag down. Simple.
