If you're in a lee shore situation, neither a parachute sea anchor or a Jordan Series Drogue is going to be the appropriate storm technique to be using.

You can get sizing info for a Jordan Series Drogue here. The sizing of the drogues is by displacement. What does your 46' catamaran displace???

According to the posted i will order a JSD if i can find the right size for a 46 foot catamaran

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
