para-anchor setups from our company and not the JSD. Does this mean the Para-Anchor is a better choice? Of course not. It really is personal preference.
Each device has it's pros and cons. Boat
design can factor into it as mentioned in the USCG report. Flat transom boats don't fair well with a deployed JSD, but canoe stern boats are fine. In some situations it's better to keep the boat
moving and not deploy a para-anchor or JSD. There's a reason why there's more speed-limiting drogue
suppliers than para-anchor or JSD suppliers.
