B 24 Roller headsail size

my B24's headsail is in need of repair and since I wanted roller furling anyway, I'm going to bite the bullet and buy new as opposed to modifying the old sail. I'm leaning toward a CDI FF4 roller furler (recommend to me at the strictly sail show at Navy Pier). My question is what size genoa should I get for the roller? I think my old headsail was probably a 110% - 120%. I've heard go as much as a 155% or as little as a 135% for the roller. Do any of you B24 owners have any experience and advice for me? My sailing waters are Lake Michigan (Michigan side).

Thanks

Have you looked at Sailrite's size chart? Or am I belaboring the obvious? Since I am completely lacking a Genoa at this point, I'm afraid I can't help otherwise.

I have that furler on my B-24 Winddancer with a 150 genoa. It is a gem.

grayowl, thanks for the endorsement. I ordered them both from SailRite and they should be here by the end of the month. I'd like to see pics of your B-24 - especially the ladder inside the companion way. Also, do you leave the door on to the V-berth or have you removed it and installed a curtain?
