Jordan Series Drogue

A few years ago I decided I will carry a Jordan Series Drogue for those times which I hope will be few that going below and putting my boat and my life in the gentle hands of mother nature is the best course.  Although I have never rode to a JSD, others have convinced me of the wisdom in doing so when too brain dead to steer and too tired to be frightened.  So I built one and am providing how I did so for those who might wish to be so equipped.

The finished PDF is now here.  How to build a Jordan Series Drogue from scratch:  JSD

Following are some photos and miscellaneous info for the JSD builder aspirant:

Following are two JSD makers which will be the best choice for most of you who wish to add a JSD to your boat.  They make fine high quality products and some are available in kit form.
