“Commercial fishermen have been using parachutes at sea for decades … on long excursions the parachute is indispensable for sea layovers, for heaving to and for otherwise maintaining station on fishing grounds. With the engine shut off, drift is reduced up to 90% with the bow pointed comfortably into the seas …other vessels went into port with broken trips … we stayed, and in this respect the [Sea] anchor paid for itself.”
