How much anchor chain is enough?

I have a IP 37 that I''m getting ready to go. I presently have 2 main anchors, a Bruce and danforth and a smaller fortress. On the 2 main anchors, I have 20 ft of chain and 250 ft of nylon rode. I cruise the West coast of FL and am planning on cruising the Bahamas and East coast of the US. Do I need all chain and a windlass or is my present set-up OK?
