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.

LIROS specify their manufacturer minimum break loads in Deka newtons = DaN
DaN = Deka newtons
1 Deka newton DaN actually = 1.01971621297793 (approximately 1.02) kg
01058 / 01058JG - 1000 = 2600 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1200 = 3400 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1400 = 4500 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1600 = 5900 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 1800 = 7200 daN
01058 / 01058JG - 2000 = 8200 daN
01058 - 2400 = 11800daN
LIROS Break Load converted to Kg from DaN at 1:1.02 =
10mm 2652kg ~ 12mm 3468kg ~ 14mm 4590kg ~ 16mm ~ 6018kg ~ 18mm 7344kg - 20mm 8364kg ~ 24mm 12036kg
