the anchor locker i built

Hi all, the problem....nowhere to keep my anchor on board, so i built an anchor locker......

before:





marine ply cut, screwed, epoxied, and filled into shape





then came the hard bit. 2kg of flowcoat, about a million sanding pads, a really tired arm and orange nose hair





Would i do it again? Not until i have a bigger workshop.

Now it would be nice to have some nice weather to use it

Looks great, nice looking seat too.

You appear to have changed the flooring, what have you used there?

Enjoy the soon to come summer!

I used cheap rubber interlocking matts from B&Q. 30 did the whole boat. It's nice to walk on, grippy too.

in fact there were two holding int down, one at each end

The guy who bought the boat new from humber had a stab at rigging it the whole boat, then put less than 20 hours on it. I have since completely re-rigged it. Now there are 25 screws holding the consol down. (and now it's actually in the middle of the boat!!)

Cool nice seat/storage locker, but did you paint the ply with resin on the inside of the box first to protect it against water ingress?
If not may be worth doing now. Once you get a wet anchor and chain in the it will not take long before the wood soaks the water up.

That will be a good job well done, it does look very smart and almost like its always been there. With out going to the extremes of making a mould up it looks like you have got a good shiny finish on it.

Cracking job.

And in the true spirit of making something from nothing rather than just getting the credit card out.

Well done.

Nasher.

Just a quick off topic question! Is that a 2.0 or 2.28 beam ocean pro?
