Tomaz-

While I like the idea of a tripping line for it... I don't think it would work, even running it down the cones... as when you tried to pull on the tripping line, it would shorten up, and would probably damage the cones, which are fairly lightweight before it worked to trip the series drogue.

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.

Pity, since my boat is centre cockpit/wheelhouse, recovering a JSD on a winch would not be easy. My current (untested in earnest) alternative is my very long line trailed in a loop between port and starboard winches. Luckily she shows surprising little tendency to broach, maybe its the bulb bow.

I have read where the retrieval of a JSD is difficult mainly because retrieval is done by pulling in the drogue against the open cups. Why not attach a fender with 30ft of light line to the end of the chain weight. When the seas calm down you could circle back to the fender and pull the drogue in from the tail end with the cups streamlined. I don't think the fender would hinder the drogue performance even though it would limit the tail of the drogue from sinking more than 30ft.

Kaniksu-

If you knew how the JSD worked, you'd realize that buoying the weight at the end will prevent it from working properly.

Why not make a tripline of some floating line? It seems that this would not interfere with the submerged cones.

Tager, Kaniksu, the weight on the end of the JSD rises and falls as necessary to prevent slack from forming in the line. This greatly dampens shock loads on the attaching hardware by preventing slack from accumulating in the bridal. I am unable to find my reference at the moment but suffice it to say shock loads are huge and are the second most likely mode of failure (chafe being #1) The two (chafe and shock load) often work in tandem.

I like the idea of a ring with some sort of drogue that pulls it to the end of the JSD to recover it. If you can keep it from snagging and tearing cones, and if it can pull itself down to the weighted end (remember the boat is very slow, its attached to the JSD) this sounds like a winner.

Nate

Tie a buoy on a long buoy line to the anchor/weight at the end of your Jordan Series Drogue.

The buoy line should be longer than your drogue. 3/8" polypropylene line should work for a 40' boat.

The buoy should be a small lobster/fishing type buoy. Make sure that its much too small to lift your drougue's anchor/weight.

Pick up the buoy by throwing a grapple at the end of a line as your sailing past the buoy and then heave to. If conditions are too rough to pick up the buoy, then you should not be sailing until its less rough.

If you do not practice deploying and retrieving your drogue in calm weather then your not safe.

I floated another more extensive thread about the JSD that has some great discussion about it. As I say there, I'm not yet convinced. But that's just speaking theoretically - with absolutely no experience whatsoever...which, of course, makes me an expert.

looking to buy one before I seriously cruise in the next couple years. Anyone tried using a boatlength trailing line to bring the JSD to the windlass spinning the boat once the waves and winds have died to say sub 30 knots? Basically use the bow height and wave action to raise more of the chutes out of the water. Also be kind of lazy with an electric windlass?
