Stay out of coral waters and you wont need chain. Esp for a stern anchor.
I know, but I have a two anchor set up on the bow, both with chain, so could use one for a stern by leading the chain back and laying an anchor attached to a stern cleat, But I would not want to do that with chain.

So the only other option is to carry a third anchor and rode just for doing this. Not sold on that.
