Any out there use a rubber feed bucket for anchor storage. I have heard of this and would like thoughts on doing this.

Thanks,

or a 5 gallon bucket from the farm store. You can drill a few drain holes in the sides at the bottom edge. Just remember to make an attempt to coil
the line.

Probably should have been a bit more detailed in my first post. The Adipose facebook page shows them using a rubber feed bucket to store an achor in the boat durring transportation. I was a bit suprised by this and curious if anyone does this or has experience doing this.

The feed bucket is standard issue....
Sucks up some shock/vibration when trailing the boat.
I luv it. Would go next size up next time.

Ive seen these in use and the heavy rubber sucks up a lot of the clunk and clang of getting out and putting away the anchor as well as during trailering. Saving quite a few dings in the boat is a good thing!

I keep my anchor and chains in a bucket, but never thought to try a rubber feed bucket--thanks for the tip! Drill drain holes in any bucket you store an anchor or chain in though, it will make the rust issue not as bad.
