Ideas on what to store anchor in.

Just looking for ideas on how I can store my 5kg Bruce type anchor while out on the rib as it doesn't have an anchor locker at the bow. I have tried plastic builders tubs with rope threaded through the handles and attached it to the d-rings which are attached on both sides of the tubes right up at the bow, but with all the bouncing about the rope just cuts through the handles on the tub, also I have drilled holes in the side of the tub and threaded the rope through the holes and after a day out in the chop the rope just rips through the plastic wall. 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

Steve.

Mick, I think that with all the weight of the anchor, chain and warp it would just crack open the tool box, I tried the builders bucket because it's pliable.

how about screwing two cleats down to the deck, laying your anchor on its side between them and lashing it down to the cleats?

Or some heavy duty velco straps bolted through the console with some washers, which you can use to secure the anchor inside the console?

Not if you got a good one you can stand a motor on some tool boxes and put some foam in the bottom
