Anchor storage query

Hi all.

I own a 4m Searider, which is getting a slight makeover these days, and I've encountered a problem which I wasn't able to solve easily.

How should I store my Anchor whilst underway on the water?
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

One solution is a builders bucket up in the bow- with anchor, chain and warp flaked into it. Can be lashed down, also quite easy to fit in / out.

I use an arborist bag for rope and chain, anchor can go inside or tied on top.
