Re: Handling Anchor/Rode with no Locker

A deck inspection plate might actually be a decent idea where I could just reach down in and pull out the rode.
Maybe. I would be worried that running anchor chain through a plastic inpection plate might get it pretty beat up. I'm in the same situation, and like others, will clip the anchor to the bow pulpit, and carry the rode forward. Maybe add a hawse pipe at some point.
