I have an up/down switch hard wired at the helm, and an up/down wireless remote for my Maxwell windlass. The remote allows me to walk around the boat and works great for single handing. Plus no additional holes in the boat.

I dont think there is room on my MKii either for a second foot switch unfortunately. I like the idea of installing the controls at the helm. Question: Can I reuse the existing solnoid or do I need to purchase the one you can buy with it? I havent opened up the area yet to see whats what. TIA

Lots of room.  Shamrock is also a MKll and has both foot switches.  The only problem is the anchor locker lid, had to modify it or the down switch would activate when the lid was stepped on.  Two previous owners lived with it that way.  Only really need a foot switch and a second solenoid.   But, if I remember correctly, the kit that Maxwell sells for the up/down comes in a box and is neater fit.
