Fender baskets mounted to the underside of the engine hatch?
Just wrap up the lines to keep them out of your engine belts.

Well this gal stores hers under the bench seat. All of my bumpers and ropes fit in there. I keep the anchor in the storage box in the engine compartment.
Word of wisdom though, I store the boat in a storage building, it gets real hot in there, I leave open the engine hatch and the bench seat so the ropes, bumpers and anchor can air dry and do not mildew.

Mine all fit in the side storage compartments (with doors) in the cockpit.

Of course the bumper/fender arguement is pretty much assinine if you think about it. Bumpers are on cars,well so are fenders aren't they? Now as for the big white squishy things I hang on the boat to stop the dock from eating the glass, I store those in the engine bay and use a spider bungee to hold them down and away from the headers.
