Gary, why would one modify/repair the pivot pin area if there was no damage there?...from the original post, he said that the bridge deck cracked (a sign of overtightening the winch according to our C22 manual). Inspecting the pivot pin area would be in order to see if perhaps it was damaged....if not, it seems to me that the repairs would be in the bridge deck area....something quick and dirty like I suggested, or refiberglassing the bridge deck area with perhaps some metal reinforcement for an improved/permanent fix.
