Hi Ed (and All),
What are your thoughts on use of the Jordan Series Drogue vs a sea anchor off the bow for riding out a storm; assuming you got to the point where active steering of the boat became dangerous (crew fatigue, short-handed, etc.).

Andrew Evans covers drogues very well in his book "Thoughts, Tips, Techniques & Tactics For Singlehanded Sailing". I highly recommend it, even if you don't intend to sail solo, just for it's emphasis on safety and efficiency.
