My primary winches sit on kind of a pedestal - so the surface to support with large washers or distribute the load is limited. As a result I have quite some stress cracks

I am upgrading to self tailing and size up from 40 to 44 - so I wonder how to best support the winch. Should I go withindividual washers or a large plate of aluminum or G10 and fill the pedestal with expoxy?

Thank ya'll for the good advise. I think I will go with the fiberglassing - I have never done that, so this could be a good starter project? I realize that the pictures make the pedestal inside appear flatter than it actually is. I wanted to extend the backing/support outside of the walls of the pedestal and I think I'd never get a proper flat surface for a big G10 plate...

I will report how it went, now I need to find out about glassing...
