hurricanehole is on a distinguished road
Your boat is the same or similar to mine, a cb 19' mariner. I was out at Cape Lookout practicing heaving to. With the main up and no jib it did fine, the main was out pretty far with the tiller out pretty far also on the same side of the boat. This worked two different times, wind about 15. A couple of days later I tried it again with the jib up also and the boat wouldn't settle down. A good skill to have when single-handing like I was and you need a break to figure out where the deeper water is. Enjoy.
