What size hand winch for a 16" with a 50 HP?

I see 1000#, 1200#, 1500#, 2000#, 4 x 1 ratio, 5 x 1 ratio, Zinc, EDC, and galvanized.

I'm thinking galvanized then EDC, then zinc as far as durability, I have no idea on capacity or ratio.

Any input?

BTW, 16" aluminum Sylvan with a Merc 50....

1000# will work but I would use a 1200 just to be safe, I'm not sure what material to go with.
