Anchor Locker in 405

Postby sailtosteam » September 11th, 2017, 10:22 pm

Hello All,
I am getting new anchor chain and rope for my 405. Looking in the anchor locker on how to secure the rope, I see the is no eye bolt or secure point to attach the rode. Totally surprised. What have you done? Is there sufficient structure in the locker floor to install a hard point?
I am also considering a Rocna 20 or 45 lb Manson Supreme. Anyone have these on their boat and how did you set them up?
Your comments and suggestions are appreciated.
Jim

Many folks just use a large knot. I always knot my rode around a 2" galvanized ring to prevent the accidental uh oh.
