Good ideas, I think the canvas bag idea might work best. There is room in the locker to mount something like that or maybe even a wooden board-holder. It's a little tricky because I also use this locker for access to the engine and other things, so sometimes I have to remove everything in it to make work easier. Any pictures of your board holders would be very helpful!

Not such a good idea, since dropboards tend to be heavy, and it could come free by accident. If you want it to be removable, attach it to the locker back with a piece of boltrope and small length of track.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Install a plastic coated wire rack, large enough to hold the stacked boards, on the inside of your cockpit locker. Locate the rack so you can open the hatch cover and drop the boards right into it (i.e. on the bulkhead the locker shares with the cockpit side). This storage keeps the boards both very accessible but out ot the way.

If you put the boards in a cloth laundry bag before you drop them in the rack, they won't get scratched up over time.

Certified...in several regards...

I place mine under the settee cushions too, which are over the water tanks. So they dont affect storage access. Just added a small "lip" to prevent them from sliding from under the cushions while sailing.

Our Beneteau came with a two little u-shaped plastic covered fittings about 4 inches long on the floor of the lazarette next to the bulkhead, and a shock cord set up so that they are kept neatly in place. Very convenient and it has worked very well.

Smile drop board stowage

mine are slipped into a 3 compartment canvas pouch & put in the cockpit locker. i have a hinged screen door with a plastic cover that snaps on in foul weather. the door is slid in place where the drop boards were so i don't have to use the drop boards again till i lock up the boat.

Long bungie, 2 eye screws, under the companionway ladder on a flat bulkhead. Easy.
