I think a furler is great but probably a bit of a hassle when rigging and derigging the boat. In fact I have most of the parts for one which I haven't installed. I'll go check it and decide if I'm going to use it or sell it. Check ebay. Sometimes you can find used furler parts for lots less than new.

I am seriously considering adding a CDI FF2 furler to my 19. Probably
put the Genoa on it. A few questions:
Do the jib sheets for the genoa go outside the side stays? Mine have
turning blocks and I am only guessing how to set it up. Will the
sheets work properly with a furler? Suggestions?
Do furlers work ok on the 19? What things should I consider?
Is there plenty of room on the foredeck for the furler drum?
Who has the best price on CDI furlers?
