The easiest thing to do if you want to install winches that are larger on the base bolt circle than the existing tops of the brackets is to remove the brackets from the boat, have larger plates welded on top of the existing brackets, drill new winch mounting holes, and reinstall the brackets. The brackets themselves are plenty strong enough for larger winches, even if the top is not large enough.

I can get that done for you if you do not have a local source capable of making this easy modification.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!

See the full list here!
