Cool - thanks Jody. Great explanations. Cogent and coherent, my good man!!
I was really lost on the drogue thing until you finally spoke some language I understand..."brakes on a trailer". Yeah - baby! So it's kind of like tying two dead pit bulls and a busted fridge to the back of my mobile home in a tornado. Got it.
Seriously - thanks. So what about the types of sea anchors - and the reasoning behind choosing one type over the other?
As for the slip sail. I'll work on it. I mean that's what my AIG boat insurance is for, right?
