"The time for taking all measures for a ship's safety is while
still able to do so. Nothing is more dangerous than for a seaman
to be grudging in taking precautions lest they turn out to have
been unnecessary. Safety at sea for a thousand years has dependede
on exactly the opposite philosophy." Admiral C.W. Nimitz
What users have to say:
"Were alive!! Thanks to the parachute anker which secured
us for 53 hours in cyclone Justin."
"The sea-anchor definitely saved the boat and ám sure
our lives. It operated flawlessly on those two other days and the
other three days during the other two gales.
We did what should have been done and came through a very violent
storm and survived with no damage."
"My parachute sea-anchor is one of the items I purchased which
performed as advertised and no defect or surprises. I appreciated
the quality and performance mote than I can express.
Would not leave port without it, ever."
"I consider your equipment the most important safety items
on my boat, I will never make an ocean passage without one on board.
People must realize that ocean cruising can be safe if you go with
the idea that you will go into a defensive position before the sea
build to high....."
Dit zijn wat uittreksels uit het DDDB boek (Drag Device Data Base)
behalve dat er 120 gedocumenteerde verhalen in vermeld worden is
er een komplete handleiding van sleep en parachute ankers, waarin
het gebruik uitgebreid beschreven wordt. Een boek dat zeker aan
boord van een zeegaand schip aanwezig dient te zijn.
