Resumen del libro

A treasury of knowledge on the use of sea anchors and drogues in storm survival situations. Sea Anchor or Drogue? Deep-Water Wave Characteristics. Sean Anchor Design. Sea Anchor Use. Specialty Sea Anchors. Drogue Design. Use of Drogues. Oil on Troubled Water. Estimating Sea Anchor Size. Drag Device Sources. Glossary. Bibliography. Anyone sailing a yacht or motor vessel out of sight of land needs to be prepared for the worst that the weather can throw at them. Just as self-steering systems and autopilots have given the offshore seaman another pair of hands to steer the boat, so sea anchors and drogues have provided another means of combating threatening seas. Heavy Weather Tactics is a classic; the last word on a subject of very great concern to leisure boaters and professional seamen alike, providing the reader with in-depth advice and analysis of all aspects of choosing and deploying a sea anchor or drogue.
