Harken Furler 21'-26'...can I use on 30'

I can get my hands on (for pretty cheap) a Harken Furler Unit 00AL (Harken) but it says it is for 21-26' boats. I have a 30' Hunter...if I got more extrusion pieces, would it work for me? Or would that be too much sail for it to handle?

Thanks.

It's the furling drum you have to worry about not the extrusions. The drum might not be big enough to take the furling line required on a 30 footer. If you're a fractional rig it might work.
