5/16 G4 chain rode on 29' prairie

I just acquired 160 ft of 5/16 G4 chain. I just looked up weight and it weighs 174 lbs. Does anyone have a chain rode on their 29. Should I worry about the added weight on the bow. Thanks

What happens to the bow when you stand on it? That's exactly what will happen when you place the chain in the locker. Assuming of course you weigh close to that.

This ^. Or pile the chain on the bow and look how the boat sits in the water from the dock.
