E32 anchor locker mod

I have been thinking of doing a mod to my anchor locker. My boat is a '79 E32, with a shallow "tray" under the anchor locker lid. There is a fitting forward of the locker from which to deploy the rode. My 50 ft of chain, and a smaller danforth live in this "tray." My larger danforth is lashed to the pulpit rails. A secondary rode lives elsewhere.

The mod I am contemplating is simply sawing out the floor of the "tray", and having access to the whole locker from above. This would mean I would have to build a little grate floor for the locker and drill a couple of drain holes in the hull below it. I would also fashion a door to the locker to close it off from the V berth (this I plan to do anyhow, as I kind of think the locker is a spider festival - yech). If I had this whole locker accessible, I could then store both anchors within, as well as chain and both rodes. I thought that also in the future I could glass in a mount for a windlass inside the locker.

The only tricky bit is figuring out what to do with the 1-1/2 water pipe that is inside the locker that runs from the deck fitting to the water tank. A minor issue.

Anybody done this? Any reasons I shouldn't give it a whirl?

Re: E32 anchor locker mod

I'm gonna answer my own question. The anchor locker tray that is on the deck extends far further back than does the small rope locker in the forepeak. It simply wouldn't work. I should look more carefully before I post such questions.
