    And what about using the drogue to separate from the container. If the container wasn't enough of a drogue itself then something extra isn't going to help. It's as though they thought the boat could be dragging the container along, NOT!

    And I expected his fiberglass repair to give way at the first wave strike since he didn't put anything behind it to give it backing. It looked like a sheet of plastic kitchen wrap, maybe a waterproof membrane but with no strength.
