I'd agree with what GordMay said.
However, here are a few multihull specific tips.
The chocks for the bridle should be in the in-board side of the hulls btw, to help reduce chafe problems. The bridle should be at least 40' long, so that you can ease out more rode if necessary, without having to bring the rode back aboard to detach and re-attach the anchoring bridle. and you should start with about 15-20' of rode out—depending on the beam of your boat. 1/2" should be good for the bridle.
I would recommend using 30' of 5/16" chain and have the rest of the rode be 5/8" rope.
If you have any further multihull specifc questions, let me know.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
