If you're going to race the 25' footer... yes, it is definitely worth it. If you're just going to cruise and day sail... maybe not worth the extra cost... Usually it can be retro-fit to the existing rails, by buying new genoa sliding cars and the block and tackle for the rail... but not always. In the case of a retrofit, it isn't all that expensive a move usually.

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.
