A record of the renovation of a
Wooden Drascombe Longboat 'Otter'

23rd June 2008. Made anchor locker.

After seeing Jerry Russell's "Peterkin" at the Orford rally I decided to put a similar anchor locker in the foredeck of Otter.

I cut through the deck with a jigsaw and used the cut out as a lid.

Then I made a box which I bonded, with some difficulty, under the deck. It is watertight. You can just see the drain hole emerging in the side.

It takes the anchor, chain and warp and is fitted with hinges and a hasp & staple.
