Mounting Plates for Deck Hardware

I need to mount some winches (Barlow 16,15) on my cabin top. I will also be mounting a clutch and some organizewrs to lead halyards from a double cheek at the base of my P26 Mast on the port side. There is a raised rib in the cabin top, and the line will need to clear this (1") on the way aft from the stopper to the winch adjacent to the cabin hatch. I would like to use a resin/epoxy/plastic material, though I am not opposed to aluminum to get the hardware at the proper elevation. Has anyone needed this approach? Which material would you recommend?

You could use "thickened" epoxy (see WEST Systems, "Wooden Boat Restoration & Repair" section 7.3 - or "fibreglass Boat Repair & Maintenance" section 7.2). If you have a fax, I could send you copies.
If installation to be flat or parallel to deck, much easier to use "Starboard" sheets, cut @ filleted to fit.
