Re: Quantity and storage for anchor chain for a Pacific Seacraft 31

Have a 1989 PSC 31. There is 100 feet HT 5/16 and 200 feet 8 plait rode on the starboard roller. Have a horizontal Muir electric windlass. Have to stop at times and use the original chain hole to stick my hand in to flop chain about. I have though that one could open the floor of the chain locker and put another floor in it to allow a straight drop of chain. If I were going on the trip you plan I would see about doing this. I did go to the 8 plait rode as it occupies less space.
On the port side I have 50 feet of 5/16 HT and about 250 feet of three strand rode.
Take a look into the storage space at the front on the V berth. You will see a lot of room there.
