I've always like self tailing winches because I don't have to tail the line to keep it tight on the drum, the others crew can do other chores, and that spot is far less crowded. I don't have self tailers on the halyards on the mast but I do elsewhere, especially on the primaries where the loads can be deadly.

"baconsails.biz/usedwinches.html" has Lewmar 43 winches for sale. I have no first hand knowledge of them but the link may help you on your search.
