For what it is worth from a SM owner that has been there/done that:
You didn't find the tiny shallow (16 meters) spot at the Male Customs/Immigration lat/lon? There is a little bump in the bottom very close to the lat/lon they publish. However, only 1 or 2 boats can anchor on this tiny spot.
I think 120 of chain is overkill and overweight on your bow. 100 will work, and remember required scope decreases as depth increases. If you still want 120 meters, splice 20 meters of anchor rode to your 100 chain.
I was happy to hear that Amel is making you a new bow thruster. I think all SMs worldwide increased slightly in value with that news.
