Randy,
Since you can get a lot of tension and power needed to pull on a headsail, I would recommend the largest winches you can afford for the headsails.
The Barlow 20's are about the smallest winches that were originally installed. Also, they are one speed, and you should use a two speed winch for headsails. From the #30 on up they are two speed.
