So then my back story is the guy did a similar trip 40 year before and he wanted to recreate the experience so didn't bring much new equipment. Maybe not the best decision but not unheard of.
Sort of like the Pardee's of maybe 10 years ago.

As far a drogues and jack lines and that stuff yah he could have done it better, so what is your point? None of those things directly contributed to his death.
Forgive me if I'm wrong but a proper jackline would have kept him on the boat instead of expending all the energy he did to get back on the boat. Also earlier deployment of the drogue would have stabilized the vessel into the waves and he would have most likely not done the first 360 that led to the dismasting in the first place.
