Goodnews...right...but the anchor should be on the bow...it is his anchor locker that he wants access to. To me that is a chain locker and a dingly over the top of it should cause no hardship worth worrying about.

The tender is for the usual; to go from ship to shore and back when at anchor and something for my kids to play with. I want the capability for sail mostly because I don't want to lug an outboard and gas. Rowing is for when we want some excercise or when there's no wind.


My anchor isnít on the bow, itís stowed in the locker. A friend told me not to worry about having a dinghy over the locker but why take the advice of someone I know whoís been sailing for 30 years when I can get it from a bunch of anonymous strangers on the internet?

If you never need an anchor on short notice, your friend is right. Don't worry. Put your dinghy over it.

For a nesting dinghy, see:

That's where I keep mine.

Interesting definition:
bower anchor (plural bower anchors)

1. (nautical) each of the two main anchors of a ship, carried permanently attached to their cables on each side of the bow, always ready to be let go in case of an emergency.

Please don't take it the wrong way. You guys don't know me so I appreciate the time you took to answer my questions. The reason I asked here is that it didn't seem like a good idea (to me) to restrict access to the anchor. Nobody knows everything.

Anchor on a bow roller; that's on my list of things to do.

Take a good look at the Tinker (Henshaw ) folding RIB; albeit pricey, the absolutely best of all worlds. Durable, great to row, small storage, light weight, stable. I've had one on my 30'r for six years, and purchased it directly from the mfg'r in England, who air freighted it to me in Phila.

Albeit pricey, the Tinker folding RIB is the answerurable (hypalon), light weight, stable, rowable, and stores conveniently--even on a 30'r. I purchased mine directly from the mfr'r in England, who air freighted it to me in Phila. Way ahead of the pack, from my experience.
