    Dropping and retrieving anchor-gctid395643

    Hi allI have recently treated myself to a Bayliner 192 Cuddy Cabin which has an anchor/ rope/chaim locker up frontMy concern is now that the guard rails are quite low and when dropping and retrieving anchor that there is a risk of becoming a "man overboard" which is bad enough at the best of times but when I am alone could be a little tricky especially if there is a bit of chop on the water (Sea)Any suggestions as to how I can improve on the way the anchor is dropped? I have posted some pics of the front end of the boat to help you

    Congrats on your purchase & welcome to the club.

    keep you PFD on and consider a tether in case you fall in, you can just pull yourself to the boat.

      I had the same exact boat.

      I know this may sound silly, but the sit on you butt and slide your way forward option worked for me. I didn't stand up on that bow for the same fear of falling over.

          Mine doesn't have the anchor locker, but I store it in the cuddy and deploy it through the hatch.

          It's a little tight, but it can be done.

            Your anchor is your emergency brake should you find yourself in trouble and need to deploy anchor quickly.

            The last thing that you'll want to be doing, will be fiddling around trying to feed the rode into and through the roller affair, and out underneath the bow rail.

            While this may look somewhat silly, leave the anchor rode within the safety loop of your bow roller.

            Bring your anchor and rode up and over the bow rail, and into the locker.

            Make sure to tie off the bitter end.

            Now when you deploy anchor, you simply toss it over the bow rail, and it ends up being right where it needs to be.

            Quick and easy and no fumbling!

            At the end of your outing and prior to trailering, you can secure it, or bring it all back into the locker.

              I agree with the above, set it up and have it ready to go.

                I also do mine from the deck unless it's to rough, then I go through the hatch.

                Works well.:arr

                  I got tired of trying to fit my anchor thru the hatch and doing the butt scoot thing to the bow as boat wakes keep the water in perpetual motion here and all of my stanchions or either cracked or split rendering my bow-rail almost useless; so I found a used windlass and installed it. Sure makes deploying and retrieving the anchor much easier.

                      I had a 192 for several years. I agree with 2850. I kept the rode thru the roller but when stowing I brought the anchor in

                      under the rail, and then out of the roller when trailered/stored.

                      I would go out to the locker and open it and then sit down with my feet in the locker to pull and drop the anchor under the rail.

                      Never had a problem but yes, you should always have a PFD on.
