Storing Rope & Chain Anchor Rode

Heading down the ICW this winter and need to add more chain for the Bahamas than the token length I use in the Chesapeake.

How best do I store a combination rope (200''x1/2" nylon) & chain (60''x1/4"HT) rode?

I plan on two of these rodes and will need to midify the shallow bow locker on my O''Day 34 to do so. I can set up pipes to areas low in the bow for the chain but don''t like the idea of tryiny to stuff the nylon down there. (Afraid it won''t go down smoothly and that it would tangle with the chain.)

I thought there''s be something written somewhere but can''t seem to find anything on the subject!
