Anchor Locker Before And After

As you can see I went with the idea of cutting a hole rather than cutting out the bulkhead. While my glass work around the edge of that hole may not earn me a slot at Hinkley's, it is nice and smooth and slippery.

What truly amazed me was that all but 30' of the 300' of 5/8" brait fit in the "new" section of the anchor locker without even coming up to the door! The louver may therefore be a bit of overkill but some ventilation can't hurt, right?

We will be using 90' of 3/8 BBB (what our gypsy takes) which I think is going to fall nicely off the windlass now. Can't wait to try it -- but that is 5.5 months away (not that I'm counting!).

Thanks for great advice on this one,

Jay
