Make sure you size chain for boat and anchor capacity. As to length, that depends on where you anchor. If you're concerned about weight, add some extra weight on the bow and go for a cruise. The weight will have a lower center of gravity in the chain locker. So if it feels ok on the deck, it will be that or better in the chain locker. Some 25 or 50 pound bags of sand from a big box store should be fairly cheap, and easy to poor overboard if you don't want to keep them.
