How can I fit a second anchor roller please

We have previously sailed the Bahamas and frequently needed to anchor with a Bahamian moor which requires two anchors over the bow, one chain to the main anchor and the other on heavy rope to a kedge type (fortress) laid aft. Both these go over the bow and are controlled on the chain gypsy and rope gypsy of the windlass. It was no problem on our double bow roller mono hull but...

There is only one hawse hole for the chain, and no second bow roller on the curved cross bar between the hulls. So where would the rope warp go?

Has anyone some bright ideas?
