furler recommendation

The ancient continuous line Hood Furler on my Pearson 26 is kaput.

I have been told that a Harken code zero is what I need, but when I read up on it, the website indicated that it is not for reefing.

The Harken is pricey too. You input would be appreciated.

I think they meant Unit 0, not code zero. Harken is a great unit, but is pricey. Profurl makes good units and are a bit less expensive.

Profurl is a lot less expensive. A profurl for a boat your size is less than $800 IIRC provided your forestay is 1/4" or smaller.

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.
