Furlers, which one is best for my use?

I acquired a 1985 Morgan 43 CC ,furler was a Harken (old, storm damaged) , going to cruise mostly, possibly some club racing later. Kinda like the Profurl equip A little confusing abou the EC , NEC and classic systems. I do like the idea of having the sail closer to the deck. I'm on Lake Ponchatrain in New Orleans lots of light air but it can blow at other times of the year. Major investment and could use a lil direction. Thanks sailbear50

Harken, ProFurl, Furlex, Schaefer, and the Rolls Royce of Furling Gear: Reckmann are all good furling gears IMHO. I've owned ProFurl, Harken, Furlex, and Reckmann and liked them all, but my preference should be obvious from the first line
If you're daysailing, the cheaper models should provide great service too.

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.

FWIW I have had a Harken Unit 2 MK IV on our boat for two seasons now and have been very pleased with it.

Cheers,
