Heavy Weather Tactics Summary

Heavy Weather Tactics: Using Sea Anchors and Drogues by Earl Hinz

Anyone sailing a yacht or a 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 on all aspects of choosing and deploying a sea anchor or drogue. 'A treasury of knowledge on the use of sea anchors and drogues in storm survival situations' Great Lakes Boating 'The most complete work to date' WoodenBoat 'Wisdom is his middle name' Latitudes and Attitudes
