Thats a good set up but I haven't got the flat surface space like your sib M. Plus my anchor seems a lot bigger.

similar layout to our 1st rib, that had a couple of cleats to hold anchor down and a bag for the chain/rope, worked really well, i've got a similar bag you can have. i changed over to a leaded rope for the anchor last year, save pulling chain over the tubes, seems to work well and doesn't rattle like chain, but a bit more expensive. would keep them lovely tubes on your rib looking well for years to come

Could LPB the hull's manufacturer not glass in a bespoke raised bow locker for you? It would then look like a professional, not 'bodged' after thought job.

It would only look like a bodged after thought job if I made one myself LPB will do anything you want if you have got the money for it...I guess it's a bit like pvc or hypalon tubes on Menai ribs
