the anchor locker and anchor base

the anchor locker was enlarged (double the size at least) and the base was built from a grill that my father had in the storage, not the grill in the picture although a very similar one (this one in the picture was sold to alex and garry as part of the entire furniture sale before our departure).

the locker is to be filled with 230 ft. of chain at least that is what we think now... but the length can change if we notice the bow of the boat sink too much once all the rode is in. precisely the same reason why we decided to put only the Bruce in the bow. The CQR will add too much weight up front; it will come with us, we just have not yet figured out where to put it....!!!!!!!!
