I'm looking at buying a drift sock and have been reading that the larger the better for heavy boats with winds of 10 MPH or more, but see were the bigger ones get caught up a little more than the small ones. Was wondering if two 26" sock wold hold as well or better than say a 44" and not have the over all size to deal with?

I would say go with 2. I do not know the size of your boat but I would probably buy 2 around 36".

Have you ever heard that two heads are better than one??? Well the same satnds true for drift socks... I would recommend that you go with two. As far as the size goes, the package should have a chart to show what size you need for the size of the boat that you have.

Get two. You can adjust drift speed.

we run two different sizes for different wind speeds. we also run them together if the wind is over 15 mph
