Mooring advice needed

I have recently purchased a 32'' full keel cruiser displacing six tons.

My anchorage is about 2 miles from the atlantic and is semi protected from surge.
I am mooring in 15 ft of water with a gravel bottom.

I have moored my 26 foot sloop here for the past 3 years. I used 1200 lb of steel and 40'' of chain. We dont use mushroom anchors here in fact I have never seen one used.

How much additional weight and or scope do you think would be good for the new boat. Also what size chain would you reccomend.
