Damaged Furling Drum

My furling drum banged against the dock and dented it. Now I can't furl/unfurl the sails.

1. Can I remove and repair the drum?
2. Can I replace just the drum?
3. Is a whole new furling system required?

Any suggestions/insights helpful.

Is the drum aluminum, plastic, stainless steel? Aluminum is nearly always repairable in my book. Stainless would be too. Cost of course is a factor. Then you may need to find someone who knows how to do it. I used to have reputation for straightening bent things, but no longer have access to that kind of equipment.
