Mines on the starboard side, but otherwise sounds the same.
Shortbus nailed the hardware, you can throw a washer or two in the mix as well.
The downside of the side anchor mounts to me is that everytime you pull your anchor it spins the boat to the side - which makes for a sketchy moment here and there when you anchor in tight spots.
did it come with pulleys to run down the side or is your boat already rigged with them? also does it have a "hitchin board". Jam cleats are way more convenient than traditional cleats, something to keep in mind as it sounds like there may be a few more pieces to pick up.
