Welcome to Sailnet

An existing genoa will need recutting and a luff rope added (if it's currently a hanked-on sail) for use on a furler. The recut is to allow for the height of the furling drum above the deck... necessarily shortens the luff length of the sail.

This will likely run you $200-300 so you may want to consider if the sail is good enough to make it worth spending that much on it, or whether you want to put that money toward a properly designed sail for that setup.

You also should add a UV screen, makes the cost even for a 24' boat maybe closer to $500...if you sail in a moderate wind area you may not want a 150% on your furler, especially one not cut for being used partially furled.

PS - I know faster had a slip fo the tongue when he said to add a bolt rope, you already have a rope, he meant a luff tape.
