How do you stow your anchor & rode

Hi everyone!

How do you stow your anchor and rode please?

Throw it in the back any old how? Coil it in a box or mesh bag? Line a locker with something?

Im thinking in terms of looking after it and preventing the anchor damaging the hull.

Thanks in advance.

Mine was in a locker below the deck. It was held down with a ratchet strap and the chain / rope was in there too. It was a PITA to secure it all particularly if it was a bit rough. My Mk2 version has the anchor stored in a recess in the forward end of the console with the chain in the bow locker. You need to connect the chain on to the anchor shackle each time but as it is much more accessible, it shouldn't be any slower than it was before. All in theory as I haven't used it in anger yet.

I've added a little 3'ish kg picnic / stern / emergency anchor and that lives in the bow locker with its chain and rope.

I bought a couple of rode bags at a boat jumble and the chain / rope goes in those.

faked into a bow locker with carpet around the hull and a piece on top to stop bounce fake it so as the chain and anchor sit in a hollow. or i fake into a bucket deep enough to stop bouncing out i force a buoy in on my current sib to prevent it moving

Good idea

I like this as it looks like it allows it all to dry out.

Mine I went to B&Q and bought a flexible rubber bucket type of thing, sits in the Bow locker under the seat, its flexible enouth so that it deforms slightly to shape of V in the bow, rope chain and anchor fit nicely inside, then all I did was drill a hole either side near the rim of the bucket and put a fastening cord across.

Bit like this one but they come in various sizes, has worked well over the years keeps everything together neatly and prevents anchor hitting any of the sides in the rib when underway or going over waves etc.

or as a combination of the two. Google fish basket.

It's not flexible like a gorilla bucket though.

Very much depends on the size of your boat. On a Ribcraft 4.8, I line the anchor bow locker with an old Helly Hansen buoyancy aid to protect the hull, then the anchor, chain and coiled rope. Fits snug as a bug. That said I can't deploy quickly.

Mine lives in the bow locker which I've lined with neoprene - the chain is attached to a 3kg anchor and the warp permanently attached with 30m of rope which is stored in a dry bag on top of the box.

If needed the bruce is taken and stored in the same locker, but not in the box, wrapped in a heavy canvas bag.

Anchor locker lined with rubber matting +
B-F-O CQR anchor wedged in the vee +
Attached chain flaked in around it to reduce movement +
Attached warp then flaked into a bucket +
Stupid end of warp attached to fixed eye in locker.
  • Lift out bucket c/w warp onto foredeck
  • Haul now exposed chain out onto tubes
  • Lift out anchor
  • Check for snags
  • Deploy.
Takes under a minute.
