Ah, but they look Purdy!

The Eagle does have a wash down connected to the fresh water tank, but I do not use it as the shower is right there. The Eagle use to have a 800 gpd water maker but I took it out as we did not use, and I took out and filled in the raw water through hull. We hold 400 gallons of water, which is more then enough for a couple of weeks. However, we presently have 4 grandchildren staying with us so 400 gallons last maybe a DAY.
*
We have about 200 ft of line/rope also in the locker, but it is not attached the chain which is not a bad idea but I am still aching from last week end. The locker could probable hold another 100 ft of chain as its deep so the chain can pile higher. I WD-40 most items that are sotred for long periods of time as it leave a film on it that protect aslong as it does not get weathered/used, and I have NO intention of anchoring.* I am a confirmed DOCK QUEEN.
*
My present view of anchors are they a like emergency brakes and only used in emergencies, just like a sea anchor which we have never used.*Since we do not anchor or for that matter leave the dock much, new chain is on the future want list along with several dozen other things.

*I know that is why I said if I win the lottery.

We don't even have a lottery in Alaska.
