Used them for several years on my Canadian boat, a 27-foot Mirage, also with old Barients. 

They worked pretty well. The key to the self-tailing trick is to make sure the line is stacked on the winch -- three or maybe four wraps -- so that there's upward pressure on the bottom of the wincher. It's also a pretty good idea not completely to trust the locking-in-the-groove thing; I always cleated off as well.

Then I got a pair of Andersens at a deep discount and the winchers were history.
