Tartan 37 Anchor rode, windlass and locker advices

I am thinking about upgrading my rode, and based on several threads it seems that 250-300' of 5/16" G40 chain is the standard if you want to do any cruising in South Pacific.
Does anyone with the same boat can advice if that volume/weight will fit in the bow and in the locker ?
For aesthetic reason, I am considering a horizontal windlass, which will reduce even more the amount of space under. Is it reasonable ?
I would love to see from Tartan 37 windlass installation if available.

Thanks !!!
