self tailing winches but what size

I am looking to replace my main winches the ones for the jib sheets this fall. I was looking at self tailing as they seem easier when sailing single handed. My question is how do I determine the size winch to buy. I have a catalina 27 with Lewmar 10's single speed. I think the 10's are small is 16 appropriate for this vessel? Another question is, is it worth getting two speed winches? Thanks in advance!
