Hi All, I just signed a contract to buy a 1979 Crown 34, basically the same boat as a San Juan 34. I have a question about the chain locker and ground tackle. This boat has no traditional hatch on deck to the chain locker that I am used to. All that is there is simply a small circular 4" deckplate to the chain locker (all ground tackle is missing and would need to be replaced). Are all of these boats like this? What are you guys doing for ground tackle? Windlass? I'd love to hear any thoughts on this, as this will be my largest sailboat thus far and this is the only part of the boat that has me befuddled.
