Replying to:Anchors & chain storage on RL24
When I bought my RL24, the previous owner used the large open at the bow as his anchor & tackle 'storage'. The result was rather a tangled mess on the foredeck, which skated around in a sea or towing and made the foredeck dangerous to visit.

There is a chain locker in the bow, accessable via a small circular (about hand size) inspection port from above. If I use this, I have to shackle an anchor to the chain every time I use it, presumably after walking the anchor up from a cockpit locker. This all seems pretty cumbersome.

The other option is to lash the anchor on the bow roller, or elsewhere in bow? Am I missing something? Is there a better way to setup my ground tackle?

Any info much appreciated.

Cheers, Rick
