1986 C36 Windlass

Any suggestions on how to add an electric windlass to a 1986 C36? Chain locker has two large doors, so deck mounted may not be an option. Anyone do this, and if so, how?

Many owners have added windlasses on MkI boats. Check out the Tech Notes CD. I remember there being several articles on the project. Most of them entailed putting a vertical windlass just aft of the anchor locker, with the motor above the shelf in the VBerth.
