Red face Fin keel and heaving-to

Hi everyone,

Some say that in weather worse than 8 beaufort fin keeled boats can't heave to.
Has someone here tried it or heard about someone who had tried it ?
A related question is how the fact that a fin keeled boat can or can't heave to influence its ability to heave to using a para-anchor in the way advocated by the Pardey's ?
