winch size

Thanks for all your comments. As I said, for the type of sailing that I mostly do, daysail, some weekend over nights , and singlehand PHRF racing, coupled with the fact that I''m not looking to spend $100''s on new self tailing winches, I need something that will allow me to quickly cleat off my jib sheets and release them while racing. Typical cleats are too slow to cleat/uncleat. I have thought about cam cleats but "Winchers" seem easier for me.
I''m still looking for info on GIBB winches for spare parts...just in case I need to repair my winches.
