Handling Anchor/Rode with no Locker

So I have no anchor locker and have yet to come up with a good solution for the anchor. Right now it lives in a cockpit locker and has to be carried forward.

What are some people's suggestions and experience?

I do have a mount to put the achor on the bow rail but that still leaves the rode? Do I remove the rode from the anchor and leave that in a locker? My anchor shackle is currently ceased shut and doesn't seem intended for convenient connect/disconnect, and should of course be ceased with monel wiring if it were to be done right, right?
