nc,

I have have roller furled genoa with extrusion (CDI FF2) on my 26 foot trailer sailor. Stepping and unstepping the mast is not a problem. You just have to control the unattached drum end of the forestay during the process. I simply use the furler control line pulling forward to keep the end from flopping around. And as Kermie says, lash it to the mast when it's down.
