Sea anchor or Drogue

Which one will keep you afloat longer when hell falls upon you?

Assuming that:

1. You are in the middle of ocean with plenty sea room
2. You just want to stay alive on your boat regardless the direction you are heading.
3. You are short handed or alone

When everything is equal, I think drogue is easier and safer to deploy. I 'd like to hear others actual experience or their thought processes in this matter.

Fine Print:
I am old school. Integrity is to do the right thing even when no one is watching.
