There are a few articles in the Sailnet Articles section that discuss all that and a few threads (and we know stating personal prefs is like dragging back up the Rocnar thread). I have a huge parachute drogue that I have ready for use but, if going offshore (ocean) I would purchase that fancy one that has tons of those parachutes all in tandem.

For coastal / inland sailing - the single parachute type or dragging a bucket behind is probably all that is needed. Personally - I have yet to use one myself but its good to have like all safety equipment...
