The missing is FOUND!
The box containing a 'chain stripper' and new seals with which to rebuild the windlass, and for which Al has been searching for for weeks, has been found!
Part of the problem is that we have moved our 'stuff' several times over the last 9 months. So Al (and I) had searched, multiple times, through EVERYTHING in the boat, the apartment, the garage, and even the small overhead storage at the marina.
Perfect timing! Al found it Tuesday (in it's box, which was inside another box) and yesterday picked up the new anchor platform that was being fabricated specially. Now he can reassemble the windlass, install the anchor platform, and attach the anchors again--a VERY important system to have on a boat!
