You shouldn't have to "dismantle" the furler. Just unfurl the sail, release the jib halyard, and pull the jib down.
When you tie onto your bosun's chair, use a bowline - not a shackle. That's good practice anyway and it seems like your luck with shackles is prety thin this week anyway.
I assume you only have one jib halyard and no spinnaker halyard? If so, go aloft with a tether and, when you get above the spreaders, secure it around the mast and back to your chair as a measure of safety.
