Re: Sea anchor or Drogue

I see your (ur father's) point for sea anchor. If I prep myself ahead, deploying sea anchor with minimal risk can be done, such as getting the anchor bridle before heading out and store the sea anchor in the chain locker. I am pretty compact, I can stay inside the chain locker when deploying the sea anchor.

After reading the Book "A storm too soon", I am thinking to install a five point seat belt harness on the top of the companion way to keep me in place. Oh yeah, helmet too.

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