Brian,

With my anchor I devised a fixing that allowed me to hold it tight in the locker, basically a J shaped bolt that hoocked through a Stainless eye that I fixed to the bottom of the locker. The straight part of the J bolt would then pass through a hole in the straight arm of the anchor.

I got fed up hearing the anchor crash around every time I jumped a wave, I would also not advocate the bucket idea for the same reason as the last thing I want flying around my RIB in heavy seas is 7 KGs of Anchor.

I put heavy ribbed rubber sheet down in my anchor lockers, never heard a peep yet.

My solution

Anchor bracket

It has worked very well.

By the way, its a 15KG CQR with 5M of 8mm chain and it's held very well so far on mud, shingle and sand. Not really tried it in rocks.

A 6kg is about the same as a 7.5kg Bruce. they aren't cheap - about 90 but there are Chinese copies around that are just the same - but only 30 - they are great - I ordered one.

They are amazing in sand and mud and they work better than a Bruce in rock.
I swapped to one of these - so much better, also bought from boatgeardirect - good service. Go for the 30 one, it is a good bit of kit.
