This is my anchor and rode storage arrangement. I was originally going to attach a piece of 1-1/2" PVC pipe to the reducer at the top, to get the rode into the bilge area of the bow, but it was to difficult to feed the rope part of the rode down that far. So I settled on storing the rode in the bow space, just forward of where the interior liner stops. There is plenty of room for 25' of chain and 150' of rope.
