It took me a few days to get over the apprehension but I finally cut the BIG friggen hole.

Dug out balsa with a dental tool. Brushed in some wet epoxy.

Once all the wet epoxy tacked up I back filled everything with thickened epoxy.

In the next day or two I'll sand everything down again, paint on some of the gray epoxy paint, drill the mount holes and get that sucker mounted.

Decided to go ahead and go with this location for the switch. 

Per the advise of some C-Brats, I have another 50 amp breaker on order that will get mounted on the lower bulkhead. This will be used to kill the circuit when the windlass is not being used so there are no accidental anchor releases.

It Works! Yay!!

200 feet of 1/2 inch 3 strand rode and 40 feet of new chain. I actually managed to splice the rode without having to watch a YouTube video again. Bonus Points!
