Hey, I'm glad you brought them up, after the front that went threw a couple weeks back, I started looking for anything I could find on surviving a storm, a slip neighbor turned me onto to a video call Storm tactics by L & L Pardey.

They discribed the whole Hoove too procedure for heavy seas, but when they showed it in actual use it was in unrelatively calm waters.

So, the question is, has anybody been in a situation where they used this tactic, and if so, what were the sea conditions and how did it fair

and one other question, where would you draw the line at using this tactic
