Bow locker

Overview

This was originally designed to house all rope and chain for the main anchor of the vessel, however, due to re-fitting the windlass when I bought the boat, and since it is best to keep weight close to the centre of the hull, I had a new chain locker built further back, under the v-berth in the forward cabin. The original bow locker is mainly used for storage now, usually of a very long warp, in case we need to set a kedge anchor a couple of miles from our position. Entry to this locker is through a door in the forward bulkhead of the forepeak.
