Re: I can't heave to

Heaving-to in the sort of light air you're describing can be a challenge, even in boats that have a tendency to heave-to easily... you really do need some breeze to create the proper balance of forces...

One should never, EVER, attempt pee over the rail aboard a small boat while underway... Get yourself something like a simple paint cup, attach a lanyard to enable you to rinse it over the side after use...
