Anybody knows how to calculate it ?

A para anchor deployed from the bow at an angle to the wind is sometimes needed to assist holding a heaving-to boat.

Can a series drogue replace a para-anchor in such a role ?

If I had a boat it would have been a bit too late to ask these questions.
I am planning on purchasing a boat for off shore cruising and my main concern (except that it would sail) is safety.
