Generally, to get stuff to stick to the really slick plastics, you need to flame-treat the surface. Personally, I wouldn't use UHMW PE in that application. I would go with either a replacement teak pad, or making a fiberglass pad for the winch instead. West Systems has a pretty good section on doing just that.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
