in protected waters with winds less than 30 kts a 35 lb Rocna Vulcan, Spade or similar will work well with your bow roller which won't work with an anchor with a hoop. In heavier winds go up to 55 lbs.

How much chain and rode will the locker hold. On my other boat I like 50 ft of 1/4 ht chain and 350 ft of 1/2" three strand nylon rope.

Based on traditional anchor sizing (Dela, Bruce, CQR), you'll see a lot of 35lb anchors on a 350/390. We use a Rocna Vulcan 20Kg (44lbs) with 5/16" G40 chain (Which is what the Rocna sizing guide calls for. Note that they claim to 'oversize' to begin with). I suspect your windlass has a 5/16" gypsy.

We have about 130-ish feet of chain and about 125-150 ft of 3-strand nylon 5/8".

The short distance from the bow roller to the windlass makes it awkward to use a CQR because of their long shank. The CQR doesn't sit in the roller very well.

Yes, a 44lb (22kg) original Bruce would perfectly fit in the pulpit with the appropriate length of chain.
