I got this from Menards fairly cheaply (don’t recall exact amount.)

I needed to grind a little off the nose to make it fit some fittings.

I didn’t have the handy little extension piece mentioned in the B&B video but Richard (from whim I bought Avocet) gave me the one he used in his construction. (I fashioned one that mostly worked.). If you don’t have one I could let you use it… or perhaps B&B has one to borrow. It lets you get down into the sailtrack.

The shoes will be retired (along with a bunch of shirts) when I finish my second boat and the kitchen project of new counter tops. 
I stuck my foot into the picture for a bit of reference in terms of riveter size. ?

After looking at avocet video and the one on grahams carlita I chose to go with a Danforth anchor it turns out that I had one laying around from my power boat I also salvaged the bow roller and mounted it on a piece mahogany this is on center line, the anchor has about 15’ of chain also.
