The Para-snail is designed to assist in an emergency situation. The para-snail gives the crew time to call for help or fix the problem, all in a slow controlled manner.
The Para-snail is an 11.5ft sea anchor with a 40ft tether line, its packed in a neat and ready to use package for quick, easy deployment in seconds. It has floats along the line and a buoy at the crown. In the event it has to be discarded it can be recovered at a later time, as well ashaving a safety carabiner to give a good secure connection to the vessel.
The Para-snail can assist you in the event of engine failure in strong winds, it can relieve pressure on the towline and keep the vessel straight into wind during squall type winds or in the event of loss of steering and many other situations. The Para-snail brings everything under control and slows things down so you have time to think, even time to get your anchor untangled and deployed. It’s also excellent for areas with deep water.
It’s a great partner to the Wrangler and brings that added safety to your business. To see it in action visit the gallery and watch the video.
