Re: Where to attach the sea anchor?

What's the chance that your retrieval line fouls the cones while it's deployed?

Re: Where to attach the sea anchor?

If the drogue were deployed from a bridle, and the retrieval line were attached to an outboard, stern cleat, and the line was same length as the drogue, I would think the chances of entanglement would be slim to none.

Cheers,
