Re: Handling Anchor/Rode with no Locker

Thanks for all the great suggestions. I'll give some thought to this.

I hung the anchor on the mount on the bow pulpit for the first time last night (coming back from fireworks) and realized it partially blocks the forward nav light. So that's one more wrinkle to work out.

I do have a small storage space in the very tip of the V birth but it's not properly sealed off from the cabin (just a wooden hatch) or designed for draining. So if I made use of it I'd need to be able to seal it off well from the deck. A deck inspection plate might actually be a decent idea where I could just reach down in and pull out the rode.
