I've seen various arrangements, the most common shown in the upper part of the sketch below.. the dotted line would be less friction, but does create a possible tripping/interference hazard unless traffic there is unlikely.

Since you're working in steel, easily modified, maybe the bottom option could work... incorporating tubes just beneath the overhead, and running them to recesses in aft sections of the pilothouse roof for the winches/stoppers. You don't say how far along you are, so maybe it's too late for this sort of thing.
