Question on refitting sail to roller furling

I have a Lancer 25 MkIV that I am installing a CDI roller furler on. I either need to retrofit my existing sale or buy a new one. I have not used my 150 genoa but pulled it out of the bag today. The fabric is stiff and almost like new but it has about 10 or 12 what look like dot repairs on it. This does not appear to be an old sail. I've never seen these dots before on a sail. 2 questions:

1) Can someone comment on using the dots for repairs. Do they hold up.

2) If I have this 150% made into a roller furler and I don't want to take it down less than a 110, should it work?

I really don't have $750 up to buy a new sail
