Default Need suggestions

I have been waiting on my new boat to get here and it did on Tuesday, everything is great except for my anchor storage bin..... I have no protection of my fiberglass inside the the storage compartment.. I don't want to just sit an anchor in there and in tear up the fiberglass, cause that's exactly what will happen.... Does anybody have any ideas on how I can secure down my anchor to keep it from moving around? Please send any links or pictures of what to do.... Thanks

I've had good results using the foam pads they sell for shop floors. Stops sliding around and "cushions" any bouncing. Easily cut to fit. You could use an adhesive, but I didn't find that necessary.The last ones I bought were a pack of 4 2"X2" pads for like $10 at Pep Boys. Harbor Freight might be worth a look too. Congrats on the new boat! We need pics!

I also use the large, wide industrial velcro from Lowes for lots of things now if you want to hold them in place. Easy to peel off to clean or check on things under the cushion. Be sure to get rubber and not foam if you want it to last, as the anchor flukes or sharp points will destroy foam very quickly

The also make brackets for secure stowage of anchors so they don't go banging around like steel missiles in heavy seas. They have them at West Marine.

A buddy of mine uses a thick car floor mat. Lays that down, anchor, chain, and rope rest on top of that. Good Luck.

Just a thought. What about having inside locker sprayed with Rhino Liner or similar product. Not sure of the cost though and I imagine with a new boat you have spent enough already.

Was just coming on to post the same thing. That small of an area wouldn't be to expensive.

I saw some thick rubber matts at Tractor supply outside last week. They came in like a 3x4 piece. I would say get a couple and cut to fit inside for floor and walls with some 5200 to protect would be a good idea. Thought they had different thickness so put the thicker on the floor and thinner on the walls. Just an idea.

++ on the rubber matting &/or two of those cushioned standing mats. All can be cut to fit and easily removed to dry the anchor locker afterwards.
