After I wrote all this up, it dwaned on me that at the dock it will help a bunch. In the wind, you and the keel are on the same side of the center of bouancy, so the moment arm matters the most (since the keel is so light).

At the dock, you and the keel will be on opposite sides of the cob, therefore you should really notice improved stability.
