Sea Anchors and Drogues: Length of Rode?

Hi

Can anyone tell me what a reasonable length is for a rode, attaching a sea anchor to the kayak? Does anyone know how long the rode for the drogue should be? Experimenting with a sea anchor which is small enough to be deployed as a drogue in emergencies. I know I need at least 10 feet of 1/4" braided nylon, but what is a good length? Anyone with info./experience with the above, can you help me out here?

Thanks in advance David
