Willard 7m Anchor Locker
I started this project a long time ago. It's been sitting in the corner of my garage and I pull it out and work on it when I have time. I've lost some of pictures but attached what are what I have on my phone.
I was inspired by bigtalljv's locker and did some further research on some stitch and glue boat building forums. I've never quite done anything like this and that's why it took so long (and lack of effort for months at a time) - I stopped and researched every step and there was plenty of heavy sanding and starting over. The point to building it and getting the anchor out of the bilge was for ease of access when there are lots of people in the boat. When either surfing, diving, or cruising, gear always ends up piling up on the deck hatch.
I have removed the two cleats on the deck up by sampson post and box will bolt down there using the existing holes. The hole in the lid will allow the rode to pass through.
$100 in epoxy, $100 on paint ($50/quart - epoxy primer & poly topcoat), $50 on a sheet of 1/2" marine ply
