Ranger 24 getting makeover/rollerfurl?

My 70's era Ranger 24 has never had anything but bottom paint done and now I am ready to put some money into bottom/ top sides/ new non-skid, and most important we are wanting a roller furler as we are getting up there in years and my husband is sure I am going to fall overboard messing with the sails. I have mixed feelings but hope it will make our sailing life longer.
I think we will for sure need new rigging...and sails....and I am hoping under 7k for all that, and a new compass. I have never seen another Kent Ranger 24 with roller furling and because the main sail is kind of small and I have heard similar boats called Broach Coaches....I wonder if the furling jib might not work for our type of boat....? Am I just dreaming thinking that 6-7k can get the job done at the boat yard? Will roller furling enable easier sailing? We are not racers and just sail the Columbia River.
Only paid 5k for the boat 30 yrs ago...guess we got our moneys worth! We love this old boat.
