More heel can lengthen the waterline, and influence hull speed. It would depend on the boat. For a full knot difference, a 30' waterline would have to become 34'. (Someone please check my math...) That's easy enough to test by moving rail meat around.
A roller furler has some asymmetry. Still guessing on the boat and rigging.
