No independent craft should venture offshore without the security and peace of mind afforded by a Para-Tech Sea Anchor. In the event of an emergency, a Sea Anchor allows a skipper to limit contingencies, fix problems, and protect their passengers, themselves, and their vessel. With sails down or engine out your boat will tend to become unstable, sideways, rolling sickeningly with rails being buried in the troughs - a Sea Anchor forces the bow back into the seas and restores stability. Also a “must have” for nighttime drift fishing. Remarkably easy to use, the Para-Tech bag is simply tossed overboard with the Sea Anchor inside - the Sea Anchor deploys automatically.
