Hi Jacob,

Yes I have been in a hurricane on the drogue.

Please see above.

When I had kimberlite built I had the stern cleats super reinforced.

In an existing installation I would change out the cleats for heavy forged stainless ones and add a big piece of backing.

Hey Eric-- 
Did you add chain plates to attach the drogue?  If not, where and how do you attach it?  Have you ever had to use it?
