I take it this is an offshore boat? 200ft is a lot. You might want to keep 100-150ft rolled with quick connects on it so you can add it only when you really need it, otherwise it is stowed away. Unless you are in deep water often..
Try a milk crate or a 5 gallon bucket, whichever will fit better. If you stack it when you bring the anchor up, it should feed out smoothly. As an added benefit, you can probably keep the anchor in the same container.
I have a 5gal bucket bungeed ( yeah ******* I know ) to the bow. I drop the line in as I pull the anchor then flip the anchor and set it inside. Bungee keeps it all from turning over and a bucket is always handy to have on board. I have another on the stern for the rear mushroom anchor.
I used a 10lb slip ring fluke style on my seapro sv2100 bay. 75ft rope tied and 50 rolled in reserve with loops and quick clips so I could add it quickly if needed. And a mushroom for the rear if I wanted to anchor up and not sway. I have an 8lb similar setup on my 16ft now.
seems like a lot of rope to keep up with..I like what sundrop says..have 50' attached, and have some sort of clip, like ******* or something, to put the two together if you need this amount of length, and when you dont store it away. If its the same price I would go ahead and get the 200', it can always be cut, and you can never have too much rope!!
