For a standard riggid Bristol 29, what power ratio would you want for your headsail sheet winches, would 15:1 be sufficiant? what about for the halyard winch?

Let me express it this way. For the halyard winches I would say Lewmar #8's would be fine. For genoa winches Lewmar ST30's would serve you well. I am a great believer in self tailing two speed winches for the genny. I have Barient ST24's on my Bristol and they are just perfect in size and power. I am using Lewmar ST16's as secondary winches in the cockpit as well.
