[QUOTE=beej67;837367]After doing quite a bit of research on the same topic, I've decided that parachute sea anchors suck, because if you don't have the right amount of rode paid out to exactly match the period of the waves, it's going to jerk your boat to pieces.
RESEARCH?? What kind of "reasearch" did you do?? Consult with other people on the internet that did the same kind of "reasearch" as you?? Advertisements from vendors?
When you're anchored firmly in a blow, does your boat get jerked to pieces?
When you're on a mooring in a blow does your boat get jerked to pieces?
What "reasearch" have you done? NONE.
