Help! Manual Windlass

Hi. I'm about to fit a manual windlass to my GRP Bruce Roberts 34'. Could anyone recommend any strengthening points I need to add to the roof of the bow cabin and if so the best way of tackling the job.
Many thanks
Reece

Depending on the location and construction type of vessel, usually glassing in a substantial backer pad to distribute the loads, not that big of a job.
