Re: Galerider and rode

Galerider list sizes as follows: 30" to 36" for displacement up to 10K lbs and 36" to 42" for displacement of 10K to 30K lbs. Can you please let me know which one yours is? Thank you.

I think you misunderstand. You can use a 30 or 36 up to 10,000 pounds, and you need a 36 or 42 for up to 30,000 pounds. He has a 36.


I've used 30 and 36 on a 34-foot, 8,000-pound cat. 36 was right. Remember that the Gale Rider is a very stable but relatively low drag drogue. I've tested many, and it's a favorite. Nice for just easing the steering.

Re: Galerider and rode

What I am trying to find out is if his Galerider is the 30 to 36 or the 36 to 42? Is the reference to "36" the first number or the second number of the two numbers listed by Galelrider to identify their products?

Got it. It didn't occur to me that a person might refer to the length of a drogue rather than the diameter. You want the 36" diameter.

Re: Galerider and rode

I'm still somewhat confused.



When I see the two numbers on the Galerider web site e.g. "30 to 36", is the "30" the diameter and is the seller offering a Galerider for a boat of under 10K lbs or one for boats of 10K lbs to 30K lbs?

Sorry for the late reply, busy days. It's a36" diameter, for up to 30,000 lb disp. Generally good shape, one small frayed spot on the white outer ring.
