                it will slow you down quite a bit but your best bet is a kicker moter. these are disigned to slow you down drifting in the wind not trolling

                A:

                You may have to use more than one to get to the exact speed you want but they certainly slow you down. I have a 21 ft cruiser and use one of them to slow my troll down from over 2 to 1.5 mph. Don't leave the dock without one!

            • Q:

              with the drift sock do I have to buy a harness or does it come ready to use. I am looking for something to slow my trolling speed down a little. Does one work or do I have to buy 2.

                A:

                Yes, it is ready to use. Depending on the size of your boat will depend on how much it slows you down but will work either way.
