Securing Anchors

I have a good size anchor locker in the bough of my Viper and I keep a plough style anchor with about 5 metres of chain and 40 meters of warp plus some other ropes.

I have a couple of rubber mats in their however they tend to slip to the bottom over time.

When out in the rough stuff or doing some wave jumping I can hear the anchor banging about in their and I was wondering if anyone has a good solution to holding an anchor in place.

Would you have the room to flake the rope into a bucket and secure by putting the anchor and buoy on top? Could you wrap one of the mats round the anchor and secure with a piece of bungee? In my case I cant dedicate the bow locker to anchor storage so I have a smaller drybox forward of the the bow locker and I can fit 50m rope, a couple of meters of chain and a collapsible anchor on top and there is no room to move.
