Anchor Storage

Figured how to put the anchor rode and chain in a cloth cooler in the little area forward of the v berth. It works nicely. The little cooler isn't waterproof but makes a nice filter for any gunk that gets on the chain so it won't flow into the bilge. Attached it with a couple of bolts to the interior fiberglass and zip ties to the underside of the forestay. I'll clean the bag out periodically and replace it when it gets too moldy.

Now it's completely off the deck!

    Here's a simple, cheap anchor holder I mounted to my radar arch. It's nothing more than a piece of 3" PVC pipe from Home Depot and some stainless mounting hardware. The concrete bucket is made to be extra sturdy and comfortably holds 20 feet of chain...
