yes i have and the one i used on my buddies boat was home made worked pretty good but had some design issues. So i ordered a Greys Platinum drogue after watching a bunch of videos from the uk. But have never used it due to selling my boat (tired of the crowds). If your interested in purchasing one send me pm

YES!!!! I do this often on lakes I am somewhat familiar with. Motor up wind to where you want to start how it out, get your line out and go. I use the motor occasionally for direction changes - you know the wind changes as soon as get set up. As wind changes the sock is deployed and retrieved as needed.

And if you are looking for one I got one to part with. I didn't realize sizing so I bought one on-line only to find it is too big for my 12'er, almost 8 months after purchase with no option to return.

 

Let me .  I'll send pic and price.

Yes I use one, they are sized accordingly to the boat size. I have a yammy 20 hp 4 stroke that trolls too fast. It works great.
