Hi folks, this is my first post here...
The boat I purchased recently came with a parachute anchor
, which is a good thing, but I'm having a difficult time making heads or tails of it. I've searched the net, and the sites of the various sea anchor
manufacturers, but can't find anything that looks similar.
The diameter of the chute itself is around 12' or so, and the shrouds are braided and only about 3.5' long (which is the main "odd" bit.) There were no labels of any kind, and it could be anywhere from 18 months to 25 years old. Doesn't look like it's ever been used.
I'm hoping someone might recognize the construction details or style and know who made it.
Here's some photos:
