Lifebuoy drogues are designed to slow down the drift rate of horseshoes and other lightweight man overboard equipment.
Lifebuoy drogues should be attached to the horseshoe ready to work immediately they are in the water.
Lifebuoy Drogue Lines are ideal for connecting the two together.
The chrome hook end of the line should be attached to the drogue to act as a small weight.
Lifebuoy Drogues stow neatly into the Lifebuoy Drogue Pouch, ready for deployment.
