Jimmy Green Yacht Drogue Warps Facts and Features:
The thimble eye splices facilitate a simple but strong connection to the bridle and the Yacht Drogue with a suitably strong certified stainless steel shackle.
Yacht Drogue Warps should be long enough to provide good stretch so that the load builds up gradually on the drogue instead of shock loading.
LIROS Octoplait (squareline) nylon has the required stretch properties and balanced construction.
3 strand rope is not advisable because it may be liable to twist and cockle when under load
As a rule of thumb, your drogue warp should be comparable in strength to your bower anchor rode.
