Hi Daniel, in my situation a drogue would have been totally out of the question. Imagine the loads with full sail up and 35 knots gusting to ??? and it would not have addressed my problem. Too much sail and too dangerous to go forward to address that.
Had the boat not handled it so well I would have had to try something else but I'm not sure what that would have been. Spilling the sails forward reduced the loads and the Amel SM did the rest.
