We were out on a C&C 38, and had to reef the main. With two people, we could reef the main in under 90 seconds. It was setup with a reefing line and a tack hook. I doubt you could do much better on a mast furling system, and a slab reefing system is far less likely to have problems.

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.
