Thats what I have done. 50m is manageable. Splice a hard eye in both ends and you can shackle them together. In extreme conditions you can shackle some chain in the last 10 meters to eliminate any chafe and heat buildup over the bow roller.
The big rope
drums we used in antarctica were brilliant for quickly deploying the long shorelines with no tangles. but could be hard to restow without a good strong deck
I always thought having one drum someplace aft would be ideal. It doubles as stern anchor
line, tow line, drogue
line, and shore line. needs to be covered (or removable) to keep the sun off.
many smaller cruising boats down there used rope
bags or bins with loose flakes succesfully to store the rope.
