parachute drogue

HI Folks
There hasn't been much discussion on drogues recently. Have they fallen out of favor? Been thinking of selling my parachute. It's too small for my boat anyway.

Re: parachute drogue

There are a lot of threads here discussing them. Can't speak to your situation, but if this search link works, you'll find more advice than you can shake a stick at.

I just bought one. Plan to use for drift diving with the boat. :-)

Re: parachute drogue

I built a Jordan Series Drogue from a kit. I once tried the leader section of it just for fun and was impressed by the force these little cones can generate.
