How much can you furl a headsail

Thank you one and all for the excellent advice on furlling vs reefing. It took a few scary trips in my O''Day 20 to understand the disadvantages to even trying to furl in 25 knt winds.
I have added a much smaller jib to my inventory and change to it very early on.
This season I am contemplating adding another furling system via a deck plate and mast hardware so that I can switch headsails without going forward.
Any suggestions?
