I could store the anchor inside the front of the console but I don't like the idea of it bouncing around near the battery and steering loom / wires etc.

Thanks,


p.s. The tub is perforated with holes to let water out

Why don't you section the rear seat off and line it out with some rubber matting so that it don't clatter around, that way you can still have storage and a new anchor locker

I keep a 300m. rope for deep anchoring on certain fishing spots in a fish basket. Cheap, strong handles and holes to let water out. Lash anchor across the top.

I always teach in powerboat course is that sm anchor should be ready to be deployed quickly - so I think storing in under seat when on the way is not the best option.

i use a black rubber builders bucket, tied to a stainless eye in the bow.

I'd sooner have it out of the way where it will be most of the time, its just as easy to get it from under a seat than it is to get it from a proper anchor locker like the man said he has tried a builders bucket and don't like the idea plus its bouncing around a lot which can be a PITA. If i wanted buckets on deck i would of got a fishing boat

Ours is in bucket in the bench seat at rear. Out of the way for people moving around but easier to grab from helm than bow locker.

You never need one that quickly do you?

I use the boat for safety boat, and my anchor needs to deployed quickly - and in the heat of the minute you forget to tie on to boat and splash...

I personally rather walk to front if boat throw the anchor over, instead of finding in locker , remembering to clip to boat then deploy.

I repack the rope and anchor each trip too...my bucket doesn't bounce since it is clipped to an stainless eye in boat.

Each to there own, but IMHO an anchor should be ready to deployed, especially if your operating near a coast and rocks.

I wished I have bought a anchor locker for my boat - if anybody knows where 5.5 m bombard DB locker let me know!

regards
