Hi, I have asked some sailmakers for price and size of a code zero that fits my boat.
The offerings varies  in size between 73 and 82 m2 and with these different furlers: Facnor Fx-2500, Selden CX25 basic pack, and Karver KF-2.
 
Anyone who have any experiences or opinion about what size and type of furler that fits best for a 430?
 
 
I would like to have it hoisted from the mast top with a new 2:1 arrangement. This to not get in conflict with top of the foresail furler. Is the mast top strong enough for that? Anyone who has been warned about not doing that?
 
For the bottom fastening, I guess I may use the existing Gennaker eye in the bow:
 
This should have enough clearance for all the proposed furlers.
 
Grateful for any comments.

Hi Lykke,
We have a Code 0 and we sailed it many times along our 45000 NM around the world.
This a 80m2 made in CZ15 from Dimension Polyant.
The Furler is a Karver 2.5
Sizes are:
Luff 19050, leech 18000, foot 9000, LPG 8460
It is not fitted on top but slightly above the jib.
We used the existing padeye on the bow. That could be better with a bowsprit!
