Question. In winds sustained 25 knots or more would it be wise to just go ahead and jury rig a drag system to prevent such destabilization from occuring in the first place?
Like shifting drag, toward astern, from one side of the boat to the other with use of a steering bridle attached with rolling hitches to the tow line.
The further to one side or the other the drag is moved the more effective it is. A car tire could perform this admirably, or even a worthy bucket. Anyway, I was just thinking of ways to AVOID these situations in the first place and wanted to ask if such a concept would work.
