Video of Jordan Series Drogue deployment...

Here is a video of a Jordan Series Drogue deployment on a Brent Swain designed steel boat (yes our Brent Swain) off the coast of Chile.

It's pretty interesting to see how the boat goes from starting to surf with the waves, to having the waves pass under the transom. You can really see the aft buoyancy of the boat working to raise the cockpit out of harm's way from the waves.

Note the extra line that is rolling hitched outboard of the bridle legs. That's a retrieval line that he used, apparently to great effect. The couple said they found the motion so comfortable, and the deployment and retrieval so easy that they plan to use the JSD is moderate conditions and not just severe or survival ones.


I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
