I wouldn't, since most parachute-type drag devices are actually sea anchors, and that would leave you likely to get hit by a breaking wave with almost full force.... which doesn't happen with a JSD, due to the differences in design and function. Most boats can take a breaking wave over the bow to some degree, but are far less capable of taking such force over the cockpit and companionway.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

One more question:

My boat has a monitor windvane on the stern. Seems to me there is a danger of something like a JSD snagging the vane contraption, and either ripping it off, or chafing on it, as the boat goes through the inevitable yawing of waves.

Any comments?

It depends on the way you setup the bridle for the JSD. If you lead the bridle fair, you might not have any problems. I don't know how you plan on mounting the chainplates for the bridle and where they would be with respect to the windvane.
