I have read where the retrieval of a JSD is difficult mainly because retrieval is done by pulling in the drogue against the open cups. Why not attach a fender with 30ft of light line to the end of the chain weight. When the seas calm down you could circle back to the fender and pull the drogue in from the tail end with the cups streamlined. I don't think the fender would hinder the drogue performance even though it would limit the tail of the drogue from sinking more than 30ft.
