Hi all, I have a '79 Bayliner purchased last fall and just replaced the anchor package with a larger claw anchor, 30 feet of chain and 600 feet of rode. My question is how/where do I stow all that? Keep it inside somewhere til I need it or keep it in some sort of tub on the bow bungied down securely? I just saw on another post the guy with the Hewes with a windlass question and someone mentioned to have the rode held down so it doesn't escape in rough seas. I have it in my garage right now in an old Chevy parts crate with the double folding, interlocking lids but without the lids installed. These tubs are pretty tough as they are used to haul auto parts around between dealer and shops. This [picture isn't my boat but my bow looks just like this one up front. Not very much to work with but there's much I don't know yet about this boat so I would love to hear some recommendations. Thanks to all.
