Re: series drogue or para anchor?

Singlehanders don't have the option of steering thru a gale. A drogue is our only option.
With my airtight aluminium door , steel shell, stern drogue and small cockpit, I have no worries about being pooped, however many times it takes to get thru a gale. With my foam earplugs in ( a very handy tool for getting thru the stress of a gale) I will sleep comfortably thru it. My bunk has a canvas safety blanket, which makes it impossible for me to get thrown from it , even in a rollover.
