You need a spool of rope

What you need is a spool of 1/2" line...600'. Once you get it, have it spliced to the chain and then you should be all set to go.

If you need it to be modular, you could put eyesplices into the end and then connect them via the splices, but I don't think that will feed well over a windlass, and it is definitely a weak point as well as a snagging risk.

I'm using 300' of 5/8" three-strand nylon spliced to 30' of 5/16" G4 high-test chain for my anchor rode, but it is a bit overkill for my boat.
