Phil,

That's a good looking project for a first timer. I was going to cheat and use a plywood core

I would too! If done right, you'd never be able to tell.

Well the time was right and the spirit moved me as they say. A couple hours of work with the saws and I have the start of an anchor locker.

Any thoughts or suggestions? I'm not sure how I'm going to do the lid.

Well it looks something like this. There are a couple design issues I will fix when it breaks. I still need to bolt it down but can't do that until the tubes are on.

Pretty...

I think I'll be copying you at some point int time. Are you going to use the holes in the deck from the cleats that were there?

i filled in most of them but left a couple just for location reference. I'll drill new ones when I am ready to mount. it's probably best to spread the bolts around a bit. I also wanted to put a cleat back but am not sure where I can do that so it would be usable.

If you build one think about different mounting for the top. I wanted hinges that would allow the top to fold all the way back but got the wrong ones and went with them because I also wanted them to be flush and not be something to snag stuff or flesh on. I might reconsider just a snap on top that comes off completely. If I had the tubes on I would have thought about it being hinged sideways but couldn't measure to see how it would fit.

Good info. Might be this winter. 1/4" ply core?

Vertical surface of the box facing aft?

I don't know what I would use them for. I've never used mine except to lash down the milk crate that has my anchor in it. For everything else, I use the samson post.

1/4 ply. Glassed both sides.

Not sure what I want it for. Guess I was thinking one more place to tie off wouldn't hurt. I'm always afraid of boats slipping off the anchor line. It's never happened but just a phobia I have

I wanted to keep the pokey protruding things to a minimum so I was thinking it would be inside the box somewhere but at this point I will fix it later if I need to. Seems to be a recurring theme for things that aren't totally vital....
