    Anchor storage?-gctid393488

    Sorry for another question. On Trophys, there is a front anchor storage. This is a small compartment on the bow and the anchor is larger than the compartment. Where do trophy owners store their anchors? When I bought the boat, it was under the seat in the cuddy. It is a real pain storing it there. AND I want to keep my cuddy as dry as possable.

    Many Trophy's had a bow sprit. So, the anchor sat on the bow sprit. THe anchor locker just held the anchor rode...

      Here's a couple of pix from Yachtworld showing a '94 2002 with the anchor roller fitting on the bow and the small locker for rode storage:

        I can imagine that it would be.

        Take heed of what Craig is saying.

        If you do not have a pulpit or bow sprit, you may want to add one.

        Our anchors serve as a parking brake or emergency brake, and should be quickly and easily deployable.... meaning NOT stored where quick access is lousy.

        With a pulpit or sprit, there's no fumbling around trying to toss an anchor out......, only to find out that the line is now over the top of the bow rail.

        The anchor and rode are right where they need to be.
