First off I want to say that I really like my 2006 190 outrage. She has been a great boat so far and my family and I look forward to many years of memories with her. One thing that always seems to be a problem when we have guests on the boat is getting access to the anchore after everyone has put their beach bags, towels, flip flops,BS, BS and more BS in the bow area. We have to clear all and make room to remove the anchor. Its never a problem with fishing because we don't bring all the stuff or bow cushion. Has anyone come up with some ideas or solutions for this problem.

I was keeping the anchor and line in the cooler seat with other items, clothes ,flashlight, bimini covers. I have other smaller soft sided coolers for drinks that we carry down from the house.
However ,I rarely anchor so I`ve moved it into the anchor locker to make room in the cooler and add weight to the bow.
I know I`ll have to scramble if I need it in a hurry.

I have the same problem with my 170 Montauk. I almost always anchor when I go out. When I know I am going to anchor, sometimes I take it out of the locker in before getting underway and set it on the non-skid part of the bow deck (usually on a throw cushion to prevent sliding or damage to the deck) and leave it there. The rode pays out OK even with the anchor locker hatch closed and bow cushion in place. If I am running in pounding conditions the anchor may have a tendency to bounce backward off the deck onto the bow cushion area. If I know that is going to be the situation I just move the cushion with the anchor on it down to the front of the bow cushion area and it pretty much stays in place there.

I wish the 190 Outrage had a pulpit, that would make storage and usage much easier. I wanted to try putting one on, but there is no deck reinforcement to hold the pulpit down. I am toying with the idea of drilling a couple of deep 1" holes and epoxying in a couple of long 1" dia dowels to use as an anchor point for the pulpit.

The 300 meters of anchor rope I carry fills most of the locker. I lay it down so that it acts as the cushion for the Lewmar anchor I use, but it's a pain as the job takes a while and if I am solo, it means here is no one at the wheel and looking out.

Try rubber or plastic floor mats. Carpeting and towels are ok but retain moisture and then mildew.

If you boat with the same 3 or 4 ppl,, Have an anchor drill,,Ladies grab the gear and move to the side guys remove and deploy/recover the anchor,,You can also practice recovery of things blown over the side

I recall looking at an anchor hanger that attached to the bow rail....some sort of "holder" for lack of better description. From memory, it held the anchor in an upright position and could be mounted at any point along the bow rail. Sorry I could'nt be of more help, I feel your pain, had the same issue with my 170 Montauk. I cured the problem with a 205 Conquest. I think there may have been a less expensive fix!

I have a rubber mat I bought from Sam's club, sold other places, in the bow and use another one behind the CC to stand on as well. They do bleed a little color,no staining, and they work great and do not blow out of the boat when trailering.
Best thing they are price right, not the $100 I spent on a foot cush that fell apart in a year and would blow around the boat.
