It would have trouble with catching seaweed. With holes on both sides this could work well as a spare paravane for either the left or right side of the boat. Once when I was running and it hit a big wave it got out of the water enough to reduce tension but then went back in right away.
Some short pulls got my scale to read about 50 lbs. So this is in the right size range to try attaching to my sailboat mast. Getting eager to get the boat in the water and test paravanes attached to the mast.
