Like all good inventions, Seabrake was born out of necessity in a life and death situation in Australia's notorious Bass Strait. This the real McCoy.
Overwhelmed by 80 feet seas and 100mph winds Captain John Abernethy conceived the Seabrake principle when conventional drogues and sea anchors failed.
Seabrake is approved by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority as a sea anchor: Solas certificate #4126 and is compliant with the AYF as an emergency steering device.
- 10 Applications for everyday use:
- Sea anchor and drift anchor
- Emergency steering
- Anti-surfing/broaching device
- Stabilizer under way
- Stabilizer/anti-roll at anchor
- Aid for vessels under tow
- Aid for auto pilots
- Aid for bar crossing
- Seabrake has twice the drag as conventional sea anchors/drogues
The Seabrake is the chief product of Seabrake International and is the original patented invention of Captain John Abernethy. The drogue comes in a range of sizes and is suitable for power and sail boats. Australian & Foreign Patents.
