Installing electric windlass -- need a pro!

Hello!

I'm new here and hoping someone can recommend someone qualified -- experienced, reliable, professional -- to install an electric windlass on my new-to-me Island Packet 27.

20 years ago, hauling in the anchor manually was fine, but now I'm mostly single-handing and, well, 20 years older! That anchor and chain seem a LOT heavier now. So I would like to have electric "crew" to help out.

If you know of anyone, please do let me know!

Thanks for the help!

Rebecca

Well, for Pete's sake. I could have SWORN I put my location in there. Hmm ...

Anyway, someone in or near the Melbourne, Florida, area would be great.

Thanks for asking!
