Just be sure that the anchor rode does not foul your bilge pump in any way, form or manner...
The bad thing about bilges is that, they seems to catch a lot of flotsum & jetsum that has no value at all.

Re: Stuff in the bilge
Secure the anchor in case of a knockdown. Don't want it bouncing around
Personally, I wouldn't put the rode in the bilge because of dirt and oil, also if you do, make sure it can't get tangled in the prop shaft, would suck to tear the shaft or engine out...
