What would a ball-park figure be to add in-boom furling
to my Catalina 34? Any thoughts on different brands? How will it affect re-sale?
Can I re-fit and use my current main sail or do I have to buy new?
You are fortunate as your main isn't that large so you might be able to get away with a smaller boom package but expect to pay close to $10,000 for anything worth having. That price will probably include a std dacron mainsail.
Resale value might be minimally increased but never to the cost of the new boom.
