If you read the reviews in Practical Sailor over the last several years, you know that you cannot go wrong with Harken or Schaffer (sp?), or ProFurl either. One suggestion is to buy a new furling genny and a furler from the sailmaker, together. I did this from UKSailmakers(NW) a few years ago and saved money even over the Port Supply price I could have accessed thru a friend. You *need* to do some research -- brochures and web sites for a start. No one can advise you until you accumulate some basic knowledge, if you get my drift. One note: if someone offers you a used Hood Line Drive, don''t buy it; their other drum-type furler seems ok, however.

I have a Schaeffer 2100 on our C&C 35-1 and I like it.

The round extrusion is stronger than say the Furlex which I have seen break.

I would get a big enough system for a really big genny for the Sabre 28. They need all the sail area they can get.

I would suggest a heavy duty 150% that you can reef as required.

I would strongly suggest a Profurl. I have had two thus far on my C&C 30 and my current 35'' sailboat. They are quite reasonable when purchased from Defender and can be assembled without the help of a rigger. They offer models for cruising and racing depending on your needs and have a calculator on their website to aid in the selection process.
