Getting parts for Barient winches is much harder, since Barient is out of the winch business.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

16ST's are the recommended size for a Cat27. You don't need 2 speed. Sailnet has 'em for $503

Barient vs Lewmar (and Anderson, Harken, etc.)

Hello,

I would put Barient winches at the bottom of the list because there is only one company left on earth that sells parts for them. Hutton-Arco, in Australia
HUTTON-ARCO Yacht Winches
has the parts and the tools. If you need Lewmar parts there are many places that have them in stock. If you need Barient parts (don't ask me how I know) it will be at least a month before you get them.

Regarding single speed vs two speed, that is up to you. If you have a 150 genoa, and expect your wife to trim it in, I suggest the two speed. If your largest headsail is a 130 or so, and you will do the trimming, then the single speed would be OK. How long do you plan on keeping the boat? You won't get the money back when you sell, but if you will keep it for a long time, you will appreciate the winches everytime you trim the sail.

Barry

Is there any downside in buying a lewmar 16st aluminum finishing versus the chrome finish besides cosmetics?

I would suspect C27 headsails to be manageable with single speed winches - but if you have a tall rig, and the wind's blowing like snot, the 2-speed option sure makes trimming those last few turns a whole lot easier.

Saurav...for 50 bucks, I'd rather have the chrome as they look a whole lot better...but no problem with aluminum.

We have 30st Lewmars in anodized aluminum finish and wish they were chrome. I suppose they both perform the same, but those inevitable stains left from winch lube and buffing splatters from fiberglass polishes and compounds, are very tough to get out.

Another thing to consider with winching is the Winch Handle. I've been using nothing but the big Harken Ball Bearing handles with the ball bearing door knobs on top for a few years and it's a big difference especially when single handing. Another added expense at around $90 but just reach down, grab that door knob, crank it in, and you'll appreciate the difference

You might try marine salvage stores like sailorman in fort lauderdale or sailors exchange in st. augustine. Probably need to phone them.
