Can you post a picture showing the bow stop, winch and winch stand?

I'd center it, on the next panel down, just far enough off the weld to allow for a good-sized backing plate and try to keep a straight pull to the winch. Maybe a 'tad higher' than shown ...

That looks like the only choice you have.
I would change out the bow stop for a carpeted board. It will spread out the load on the front of the boat.
