I thought I saw someone state that they had "padded" the anchor compartment on their Montauk 170 but I can't find the thread. If someone has done it could you please tell me what you did. Thanks......Jim

I think i seem to remember them saying they used a full width rubber car floor mat and another person had used outdoor indoor carpeting.Definately seems the way to go,i can't imagine what a anchor would do to that nice gel cote over a few years.

I thought it was using the pickup truck spray on bedliner.

I used DriDeck squares for a cheesy lining job, intending it to be temporary until I get around to doing something better. It actually is working out reasonably well, and I might just leave it like this, although I might try to trim some more squares to fill in the unprotected areas more fully. The DriDeck is easily removable for cleaning, which I like, and it does an excellent job of letting water drain from the rode and out of the locker, as well as increasing air circulation over a plain rubber sheeting type of solution.

I use the dri-deck squares and a plastic soda crate. The drideck squares lay under the crate and curve up the rear vertical face of the locker. The rode is coiled in the crate and cradles the anchor. The dri deck prevents any portion of the anchor that hangs over the edge of the crate from hitting the vertical face.
