First off, you didn't tell where to go to help with grass seed.
Second off, you didn't say anything about providing the BEER.

Not alot of space in the rear of my boat...I keep mine under the v-berth storage compartment in the v of the hull. I set it on the line itself and have slit 3 tennis balls and slip them over the ends of the danforth as not to cause damage bouncing around...so far...so good...

Some models do........my 312 does, the 382 I have does not. I think the 353 does. You can see it on the bow here in this photo. It is best for keeping ice only (it does have a drain to the outside).

Hey O-Zone,

What year is your Superboat? I guess having a skinny boat has it's disadvantages when it comes to storage. I don't like keeping anything too heavy in the v-berth storage.

Hey Nort, that looks like some pretty nasty water!

I store mine in the anchor locker in the bow of my 27 Fountain. I bought some of that Dri Deck rubber grid flooring from West Marine and covered the inside of the locker with it. At the bottom of the locker is the bow lifting eye for the boat. I securely fastened the anchor to this eye so it is pushed into the rubber dri deck floor and cant move. Since then I have been through some pretty rough stuff for a long period of time and it didnt move.
