Need some ideas and help in the best way to approach installing the LD Marine roof mounts

The mount bases are about 8" square and I have 5" between the handrail and the outside of the hardtop.

The handrail is PVC, so cutting it is a bad idea; the backing plate aft of the handrail is for the rod holders mounted off the roof.

Mounting inside the handrail is possible but I'll end up giving up 12-18" of spread width on either side.

Suggestions?

I was planning on decoring and filling w. the West 610 epoxy recommended previously, leveling with a starboard wedge and backing w. washers, a piece of starbard as backing makes better sense.
