heaving to and hoving to are completely different.
It's just conjugation and all the same:
"I will heave to."
"He is heaving to."
"We are hove to."
The difference you alluded to is between heaving to (in which one attempts to make little to no way) and forereaching (in which one expects to make one or two knots upwind).
