Well I'll go to the foot of my stairs.... I never even thought of that BS the rear seat has got loads of room, I could section off a third of the space and drop it in there protecting it with foam or camping mat stuff. You just presume that the anchor is always at the bow.

That's why the loose end of the anchor warp should always be fastened permanently to the boat, I thought you'd teach that on the powerboat course

Also not a bad idea to have a quick release clip and a small float or bouy on the end too so that the whole lot can be thrown over the side and recovered again in an emergency .

Good job this chain end was fastened to the ship.

A cleat, ring, loop in the rope end, a small bouy as Marty suggests, I dunno, use your imagination. You've already identified the risk that it might go over the side, you now need to mitigate the risk.

I have mitigated the risk, by making sure it is tied to boat in position for deployment before leaving harbour - and that what my advice to anybody is. And addition of anchor buoy sounds good advice too.

It was you that suggested keeping at the rear of boat, and a later mocking post to me stating it has to be attached to boat at all times ...

My point was, an anchor should be attached to boat and ready to use at all times when the boat is being used.

If it is not - there is a chance when you are in a "panic" you forget to tie it on to boat, or you assumed your crew had done it.

IMHO i see, an attached anchor ready to be deployed is good practice....


regards


Scott
