Pro Furling System CC 37

I am having a Pro Furl system put on to replace the old system that had hank on sails and roller furling only. The head stay rotated when you furled the sail and rolled the sail on the stay. Good for furling but not for reefing!The new system drum is a little higher than the bow pulpit and I think that is a little too high. Does any one know how high above the deck a furler should be and still not chafe the sail on the bow pulpit or life lines? The old system was on the deck and the sails were always rubbing both.I need to know ASAP in order to keep them from cutting the sail too short.Will have to add longer top alumimun extrusion to lower drum. Thanks Pilgram
