Re: Apparently I'm not meant to have a boat...
I bought her book and am working my way through it. Once the head is pumped out, I plan on rebuilding the head and replacing the hoses. Since I was going that far, I was planning on removing the macerateor pump and related hoses. I don't expect to be in a position to do overboard dumps any time soon, and the pump takes up some prime real estate. I also need to make sure the vent isn't clogged. I looked for it a few weeks ago, but didn't see it. I was perusing my online photos the other day and saw where it is, so that's a good start!
Regarding the furler, I am not sure of the brand. It uses a track with two slots (though the sail only goes in one of them) and the furling line wraps inside an enclosed drum. The job halyard attaches to a car that rides up the track and the head of the job is attached to the car. The car serves as the swivel. There is a picture of the furler in my gallery, but I can't link to it (typing on my phone).
