Have never measured it...but it's big enough for lots more....

If I were you I'd extend with anchor warp to save on weight. I have 30m warp spliced to 30m chain.

Nobody has asked what size chain. Is it 8mm or 10mm?

Or imperial?

I have 50m of 8mm on my Centaur and it's lots. I hesitate to say too much because some day it may not be enough, but so far it's been plenty.

I once had enough chain out that I didn't get puddles in the cockpit when it rained O/N, the first time that I realised that there is a down side to having an all chain rode weighing down the nose of my boat.

Are you sure you need more chain or would some anchor plait do? Just asking?
