The winch is going starboard side as close to the fin box as shown on the plan, and with the drum above deck.
D:..sounds good....but maybe on the next one, as this a bit of a learning journey this time.
Just epoxy some 100 pound Dacron or SS wire from the stringer to the hull, better to be safe than sorry.
