Anchor chain ... locker

I am making up my lists of which silly project to add to my 'TO DO' list.

'THE EXPERTS' say move the chain locker from the fore peak (mine doesn't even have a deck hole into it to make it into a chain locker) more toward the center of the boat - makes some sense - so my questions to you are:

1: Should I worry about this problem?
2: How large a locker do I need for 100' of 5/16" chain and 300' of 1/2" nylon?
3: Is there a better or worse shape for this locker? My first preference is something like 10" schedule 80 PVC pipe about 4 foot long
4: Should I make an identical setup - roller and locker for my secondary anchor?
