if you've never used a furler, you're in for a treat as once you understand the workings, it will amaze you as to the ease of it.
It is possible to change sails, as most furlers have a track, or two that the sail slides up inside the unit.. Even while racing, the change of a sail by sliding one up while the other is comming down is common.
To take the furler off completely is another story as most furlers are intergrated into the forstay but as I said, the sails can be removed easily.
