Series Drogue - 130 Cones - for 14 ton boat

Hi,
We're planning to cross the North Atlantic from St. John's, Newfoundland to the Azores and then Ireland and are looking for a used series drogue for our Najad 405. The boat weighs about 12-14 tons so I think about 130 cones are needed or something we can modify would be ok too.
Thanks,
Mike

If you don't what you are looking for in time or in budget, consider a used car tire and some imagination to give you the same ability. Here is a link to a cruising couple demonstrating this exact techniques...

Good luck and have a great trip!
