Can I use a furling mast without he fuler?

I am looking at a boat (P35) that was dismasted. a replacement mast was purchased but never installed. Anyways the mast does not include the furling hardware but has the furling slot and an emergency sail track. So the question is: rather then buying the furling hardware and a new sail. Can I use the emergency sail track and just forget about the furler. Then if I wanted to add it later I could. Or in other words is this a usable mast.

I am aware of the downfalls of in mast furling. My goal would be to set this boat up for single handed coastal cruising.
