Couldn't you simply rotate the winch bases a bit, and drill and tap new holes in between the old ones? # 6 winches are pretty small, and as the loads will only be in shear, it shouldn't really be necessary to thru-bolt them, machine screws alone should suffice - at least until you perhaps lower the mast, and back them up with nuts...

Be sure to use Tef-Gel when threading the new machine screws, you'll be good to go...
