It is very unlikely that buying a furler for your boat will have much of an impact on the selling price in 2-3 years.

The main reason to buy a furler is for your convenience, especially if the boat is in need of a new headsail, since you can get it made specifically for the roller furling unit. Of the furling units out there, I would recommend Harken and Furlex as making excellent units. Profurl and Facnor are also quite good. I'm not a big fan of the CDI furlers.

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.
