Because there is some slight possibility that a washer, bolt, or nut might get lost, I bought a couple of extras from Lowes to have available if needed.

Losing the bits in a heaving sea was my concern also.

Since this is going to be your standby anchor, what are your thoughts about tack welding the nut to the fluke so that the only thing you have to do is insert and tighten the bolt? It would also make it a one-wrench operation. Being tack welded, you could always grind the small weld points if you wanted to return it to OEM design.
