I would drill the holes through deck and liner for the bolts, following Casey's advice if you can, particularly since winches get stressed which stresses caulk. Then drill larger holes, big enough for nuts and backing washers which get installed up against inside of deck. You can then buy a round piece of teak with a screw hole in center which is used to screw this cover in to the liner. This allows access to the underside of the bolts if needed in the future. You should be able to find these round covers in a large enough size. If not, go to a marina and dumpster dive for a scrap piece of 1/4" teak plywood that you can cut a circle out of.
