I have 2 Maxwells behind my staysail. One on each side for seperate lockers, and seperate anchors. A 55lb Delta, and a 66lb Bruce knockoff, Claw. The builder of the boat was working both anchors with one windlass. One in front of the net, and one behind the net inline. I seperated the 2, and put both anchors on the front crossbeam.
I also have 20 foot of cable on both controls, so I can walk up onto the bows, or crossbeam to watch the anchor settle, or be lifted. My wife will give the boat a bump forward, and then I lift a short distance, and then let the chain pull me forward. After a couple of lifts the boat will actually pick up speed, and I can steadily lift the chain.
If I am picking up more than 100ft of chain. I will have to reach into the locker, and give the chain a nudge to fall off of itself. So far I have not had a problem deploying, or retreiving the chain. I almost always put out 10/1 scope. I feel better when we leave the boat, or a squall passes over while taking a nap.
I use the bridle to bury the anchor, and a snubber as a backup to the bridle for whatever reason of failure. Nothing like getting a second chance in life, or sailing........LOLOLOL
As I posted before I use colored plastic ties, and have the lengths marked on the inside of each chain locker hatch. I always open the hatch, so I can keep an eye on the chain as it leaves, or comes back to the boat.
