CDI Flexible Furlers
I had a CDI furler on a Hunter 30 and, by coincidence, it had a 47'' luff. It was fine. Its indestructible, easy to install, zero maintenance and cheap. I used it hard for 6 years and it did not fail. I wish that was true for everything I bought for my boat.
It ships in a coil and all lengths are about the same size package. It uses its own internal halyard that comes with it that raises the sail up the extrusion. The tack is tensioned to a fitting at the drum to provide luff tension and is not readily adjusted underway.
