71 Swan windlass?
Seems like good advice from the regular old salts on here.
I'm thinking you intend to install the windlass and related stuff yourself? If that is the case there are many things to consider.
Balsa cored deck? Probably.
Dropping a windlass (or anything) in that deck will require some engineering and understanding of it's structure.
Balsa or not, installing cleats, windlasses, or anything else bolted to your deck can cause big problems if not done properly.
I haven't read all the thread here and this has possibly covered?
If you care, I've got more.....
