The main reason for a sea anchor is to keep the vessels bow into the weather in rough conditions. One of the single most dangerous aspects of ocean crossings comes with loss of power for whatever reason and the vessel being hit broadside by the swell. Not only is it incredibly uncomfortable but also incredibly dangerous.
After much discussion it was decided that we would go with the ParaTech offshore sea anchor. Don and his team from ParaTech are real professionals and understand what is required when the weather turns nasty.
The ParaTech sea anchors have been designed to maintain your vessels stability in the very worst of conditions and, as such, keep your bow straight into the oncoming weather.
