Best suited as a drogue towed from the stern, it will slow the boat — helping to prevent broaching as the boat runs with the wind and waves.
To prevent twisting shut, the harness is equipped with a 1/2" galvanized swivel.
A common rule of thumb for sizing a drogue is to use a drogue whose mouth diameter is about 10% of the boat's waterline length.
Proper deployment of a drogue is arrived at through practice and experimentation.
You don't want your first use to be in actual storm conditions.
