Anchor locker

We anchor A LOT.
This should have been a factory option IMOP. Getting people to move to get under the rear bench, dragging it up and down the sides/bow. Draging mud into the boat .. I got tired of that noise.

Wow! What a great idea and looks awesome. Beats the old lifejacket and shirts I wrap around mine and store in the fwd anchor locker.

Love it, very tempted to do this....

That's bad azz! Nice work.

Have you run the boat yet?

Id just be concerned about the weight way up at the bow. I stored our anchor in the bow storage once, noticeable ride difference with the weight of the chain and anchor that far forward. Went back to storing it under the rear seat.

I doubt its noticeable, I have a 20 or 30 gallon water tank up front, boat rides the same either way I cannot ell difference from empty to full.
