I just finished studying the Pardey's on Storm Tactics with the primary tactic being hove-to. I believe they would suggest experimenting with a para-anchor and using a winched in pennant line from the stern to the anchor line in order to adjust the angle of the boat to the wind in order to reach the optimal 50 degrees into the wind. The para-anchor would also reduce your forereaching. This para-anchor was necessary for them in very extreme conditions, which is always a good thing to plan for.
