I see a lot of people using diving reels with their original cords or people just using paracord and not a lot of it (even those retractable dog leashes). In my case I have about 6 feet of chain and 200 feet of 3/16" diameter double braided rope.
Doubt I can make anything that would hold all the rope and float if thrown overboard.
What do you guys use to store your yak anchor rope? Any recommendations? I can't seem to find a suitable spool that isn't too bulky.

Location: I live in a house, but my soul is at sea.
I made up something like this with some 1-1/4" PVC, stuffed with shipping peanuts, end caps with some eye bolts (sealed too). I have an anchor trolley, let out the line I want, clip double stainless clip over anchor rope and on to one end cap, the other clip goes on my anchor trolley. If I need to let it loose, I just unclip and it floats. Sort of a pain to wrap up each time, so I just loosely place the anchor rope by the side of the seat between sets and only spool it up at the end of the day.
