Re: Handling Anchor/Rode with no Locker

a collapsible box is our "in-use" rode locker, and the anchor lives on the bow pulpit.
We cleat off the desired length of rode (our anchor rode is marked in 5' increments. i wanted to mark in fathoms, but SWMBO wanted to keep things simple.)coil the remainder in the box, and it's good to go. when you retrieve the anchor, the vented box makes it easy to clean the rode- just douse it with a few pails of water.
you can see the anchor bin on the bow of our boat, here:
