Re: Heaving-To versus Bare Poles

[QUOTE=sailingmum;1052259]Have you read the book ?
QUOTE=sailingdog;355929]First of all, it is Larry and Lin Pardey.

Esteemed Mary T Pearson,
No, I have not read it, and I certainly don't need a book to tell me how to heave to. With all do respect to the venerable couple, their bias towards their chosen size and type of vessel clouds the fact that fin keel vessels heave to just fine. What you are quoting MAY apply to a super high aspect extremely deep short chorded keel/bulb such as on a VOR70, (the absolute design antithesis of what you are describing) however I'm sure even they still could heave to using a Galerider off the bow.... and may well not need it at all.
