I'm planning to add a sea anchor and snatch-block arrangement that the Pardys wrote about in Heavy Weather Sailing. Then I'll check to see our rate of drift - and check to see if we can get the protective slick to windward, as opposed to aft and windward. When we hove-to a week or 2 ago, we "sailed" out of our protective slick.

It will have to wait until next year, we are taking the sails off today.

Regards,
Brad
