That's a lot of anchor for your boat, especially in the Chesapeake where holding tends to be quite good.

Stowing it below and bringing it on deck when needed will be a major nuisance, not to mention a big mess belowdecks. Also, there is a big safety margin associated with having the anchor on deck and easily deployed. Beyond the likelihood of it not fitting in your anchor locker, it might not fit on your bow roller either, and will require comparably heavy chain and shackles.

Bacon's in Annapolis has piles of used anchors. You should be able to find a +/- 30 pounder Bruce, Delta, or CQR that will be a better fit to your boat and still give you plenty of confidence.
