it is really very easy, I used a couple of pieces of pkywood and some epoxy. made a locker by tracing out a pattern with cardboard. It now holds my anchor and is a great seat in the bow. Ill look for some pics for you and post them. Mine is on a sr 5.4 but could do the same on the 4.0

I've been thinking about doing this on my 5.4 so if there are any pics around, please post them.
I've never tried real fabrication in ply and epoxy, any tips ?
