Anchor Locker Liner

Anyone got a solution for lining their anchor locker to stop the achor jumping about and damaging the fibreglass? I've got a Brig Eagle 6.50, so due to the size, some sort of rubber sheet cut to size? Thanks

B&M heavy duty rubber door mat. Under a tenner, cut it to size/shape.

On my Ribcraft I feed the 220m of warp in to create a snug hole in the middle where the bruce sits, each side of the Bruce I store the fenders, so even in a big sea, the anchor ain't going nowhere.
