Not exactly a mod, but an easy, effective, and inexpensive way to keep the anchor handy when you are planning to use it. A #8 anchor rests between the mast tangs at the fore pulpit, and is held in place with a short bungee cord. You will want to put some sort of pad between the shank and the hull, and of course it would make sense to go ahead and attach the anchor line before you head out.

Model Year: 1994
Photo Caption: Nice and out-of-the-way. Not sure I would want to keep it here permanently, though.

    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....

    I wanted to keep the deck clear of lines/rode when anchor was stored, so I used a jigsaw to match opening for a Shell Vent 2 x 2-1/8" to allow the anchor locker door to close on line/chain Published by: macr
