By the time you are down to your smallest storm jib I doubt you will be motoring.

I would skip the furler and install a Solent stay. Just as easy to use and a lot less expensive. When you need a storm jib is not the time to be messing with setting up a furler, especially on the deck of a small boat in heavy seas.

Unless your budget is unlimited of course.
