anchoring

We have a draft of 4.5''. I like the idea of chain but our rodes now have about 15'' of chain. Hauling up the plow anchor last weekend from only 10'' was hard I don''t know if I can handle an all chain rode especially in deep water. I was exhausted once hauling up a danford with 15'' of chain from about 40''. Thanks Tom
