    Anchor basics advice sought

    OK, so I've been a proud owner for 16 months and roughly 60 engine hours now and have never tossed the anchor that came with my boat overboard yet. That's a good thing, because she's not tied down. We do enjoy stopping and swimming, but thus far we've just been swimming for 10-15 minutes at a time while monitoring our drift. Now that I'm into our second summer, it's time to get my butt in gear with this. I have anchor line that came from the dealer, but it's my understanding that having a certain length of chain at the anchor is best in addition to the rope. I'm looking for advice on what to do here. Is there a specific kind of chain and coupling method that is best? Where should I go to acquire such a thing? (My boat is docked at a fairly rural lake.) I'm not the best at my nautical knots, so that is another reason I've put off this project. Thanks everyone!
