I have one of these that came with the boat - Has anyone used one as a drogue? Any Reviews and comments would be appreciated.

Re: Burke SeaBreak

You won't have any use for it, best sell it to me, say $50 plus postage.

You could then put the money towards a nice Jordans Series Drogue.

I think that would be a good deal

Re: Burke SeaBreak

Well, there is no reason why it wouldn't work. You will likely need a bridal and some strong points if they don't already exist. The construction calls for a long rope which will be quite thick for your size of yacht. You might consider Dyneema or Acera

You may never use it, but at least it will be on board ready to go as an option if it all goes pear shaped.

Yep those were my thoughts. I have 4 cleats on the stern, two of which are placed nicely in between the hulls - I will check them and maybe beef up if needed.
