Like all good inventions Seabrake was born out of necessity in a life and death situation in Australia's notorious Bass Strait. 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.
Seabrake’s unique principle operates through the disbursement of water flow to induce local turbulence creating a variable pressure wave which is activated by speed through the water. The greater the flow through the unit, the greater the drag effect. As the water is disbursed evenly through the four (4) exhaust ports at the base of the Seabrake it tracks truly with no rotation, providing endless hours of tangle free operation and reliability.
