Crealock 37 Anchor Locker

Dear folks, As much as I love this boat the anchor locker is simply too small. The chain piling up just as the anchor is about to break free is not just a pain but also a safety hazard. I am therefore considering removing the plywood "bulkhead" which can be seen inside the fold-down door in the second of the two pictures below and dedicating this space for the usually unused last bit of the primary anchor rode. Any reason NOT to do this?? Obviously I would supply ventilation to the deck and a beefed up door latch. Anything else I should consider?

Many thanks, Jay
