Correct, but I used wood to make the box itself!

To mount the cleats, I used existing box mounting holes and existing holes in the deck. I didn't drill anything. Should I have used some sort of sealant in the deck?

As far as anchors, I'm not sure what I am going to get. I have never pulled up an anchor in kelp. I have only anchored in sand and mud, and the Danforth has worked great in deployment and retrieval.

I have only anchored once so far, and it kinda sucked. I have an electric windlass on my sailboat, which I really like.
I will be looking in to mounting one on my Sampson post on my 730.

Jason,

The boat's name was Red Rocket. It is a Northport 7M.
It was the boat I tried to buy before I purchased my current boat.
It was owned by an LLC. I don't know who finally purchased it. Todd might know.
The SS work was done in OC, and I believe it was really pricey. I think my swim step was done by the same company.

Edit: I won't be using this company for my SS work. The workmanship looks nice, but I have heard from a couple of customers that they found it a little difficult working with that company.

Perfect. You probably just needed slightly longer screws. No need for sealant then! (for some reason I thought you might have just screwed that cleat in with wood screws)

I have a couple good options for fabricators so that's not a concern. I had envisioned about the same setup, good to see it can work.

Jason, if you do have the windlass and arm fabbed... please post up. Curious about that. Ryan and I discussed that and we ultimately opted against... but I'd be curious how it performs and how it is to use.
