On my first boat, a Venture 24 with swing keel, the keel winch was supported by roughly 2 x 6 piece of oak in the cockpit. The ends extended over onto the cockpit seats for support. A temporary fix for you would possibly be to do the same, and use longer bolts to thru bolt this external wood support through the normal fiberglass support area for the winch.
