Heaving to in a searunner 37 trimaran

Hi, I'm about to do a coastal passage in New Zealand with two crew from North Cape to Nelson, and would like to hear of experiences heaving to in heavy weather in a searunner 37 or similar.
Cheers, Brian

The drag device database https://dragdevicedb.com/category/drogues-on-trimarans has exactly what you're looking for. Jim brown has recommendations (although dated, still relevant) in 'the Case for the cruising trimaran, which I believe should be available online https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...GrGdxOjCNTuOpP for free on his web site outrig media

Heaving to in heavy weather is a poor choice in a light boat.


You may consider running or some other option.
