Protecting boat hauling an anchor

new to small boat ownership so have a 24 foot powerboat and will need to haul the anchor up the side of the boat then stow. i have googled all sorts to find something i could buy that would do the job properly that could be dropped over either side of the boat and the rope and chain be pulled up without ripping the paint to bits.
anyone got any clues

use a small roller on the tip of the bow and haul it up from the deck, much less likely to hit the boat as the bow makes a nice overhang

ah ok i dont have a roller there but will look to see if i can fit one.
what do you now normally do with all the chain rope and anchor now it is coming up out the sea and you are bobbing around on the front ?

Take a bucket up with you and load it into there, then stow the bucket afterwards and it will be all ready to go next time you want to anchor. You won't need a huge anchor for a 24ft boat. Bruce style anchors are brilliant if you intend anchoring on sand most of the time

ok thanks i have a bag it hauls into but was wondering how to protect the boat when hauling the rope and chain up but the roller might work.
i was just thinking as most of the time i would be on my own it might be easier to haul it up from the side was all but then wondered how to stop it scraping the hell out the boat side
