@SPR I have a few OVEROARD duffels, have used them for SIB but not for snorkel equipment.

I think that for fins, neoprene jackets, mask you need mesh bag to dry them ...
The same for anchor. It is not so good if you keep wet rope in waterproof bag.

We use waterproof duffels for spare T-shitrs, normal shoes (we use neoprene shoes for swimming and walking near beach in Greece).

For towels you need mesh bag also ... We are 5 persons family (2+3) so we have a few bags every time

>>>>>>

Sorry - you probably suggest it for rescue flares, spare parts for engine ... others

Presumably, even if you have an anchor close to hand, you are still going to have to leave your seat to attach it to a strong point on the RIB and then deploy it over the bow? I can't see any sense in what you are trying to do? As long as it is easily accessible in the bow area, it will be just as quick to use.

Of course not

My idea is to have end of the rope attached to A-frame, small part on the floor and rest of it (rest of rope, whole chain and anchor) in the bag.

So I will:

1. Open bag (for example velcro closure)
2. Get an anchor
3. Put to the water
4. Go straight slowly
5. Turn off engine
6. Tilt engine
7. Unplug kill-cord
8. Go to bottom
9. Use main anchor or moor boat to coast

Something like that I made on my SIB

Depending on the situation, I prefer to have the anchor attached to the bow, so the boat will naturally point into the wind. waves etc

I hope that main anchor will fit bow locker. Based on pictures it looks quite a big.
OM540DL
Maybe I will try to mount some very solid mesh bag to AFrame to keep second anchor and boat bumpers/fenders.
