I wouldn't want to dump a para-anchor-type sea anchor (too expensive) but a Jordan series drogue is simply a hundred cloth cones on the sort of line you can easily replace.

Or am I missing something?
With a comment like that you probably should not be on the water. Do you know how many whales each year get caught in marine debris? Do you know how much effort is spent freeing whales each year from marine debris? Do you think the ocean is a dump? I hope you don't throw your plastic trash in the ocean, and if you do, I hope the coast guard is watching. If you go to sea be responsible for your own junk.
