I don't know the answer to your question, exactly, but I am guessing that the capers and anchovies are meant to be salted. You should certainly taste and adjust before adding additional salt. Are you using canned or jarred anchovies? I never remove the bones. They are usually pretty soft and can be chopped up with the fish. 2lbs of potatoes is a lot, so I would wait to decide on the mayo question until you have everything assembled.
