Re: C37 Anchor Locker Partition

I second Dianne and Chuck's comments. We use old shower curtain bits cut to shape so they hang down well past the doors. Works great. We also painted in there with Interlux Brightsides which has teflon in it to create a nice slippery surface. But, with 90' of chain and 250' 5/8" Brait the damm stuff still sometimes piles up just as you are about to break out the anchor. Our hawse pipe is too small to get any sort of pry bar in so we do the demented poodle run below. Grrrrr.

Re: C37 Anchor Locker Partition

I have a '89 PS37. I think my anchor / chain locker is a little different than some of the ones I have seen posted here. It has a dividing wall down the middle in the upper section, but the wall angles off to the port side and makes a smaller section on the port site. The starboard side opens down into the lower section. I just replaced the windlass and decided to straighten out all the chain / rope and clean everything up in the locker. The boat is new to me, so i found a few surprises on chain, but the biggest surprise is that the dividing wall is rotten. It looks like the wood core has been wet and the whole thing is falling apart.

Does anyone know if this wood will be connected into the hull or is it just superficial? Also, as it looks like I will be chopping it out and replacing it, does anyone have a picture of a good setup that works for them? Or any helpful ideas?

I have a Tigres windlass so the chain falls into the starboard side. I just installed it, and I'm not looking forward to another project in the locker. I think I will go with an all chain setup for my primary anchor, but I would like a spot for a spare. I'll put a few photos below, but I'm not sure I have a good one that shows exactly what it looks like.
