I think the Pardeys' description of evaluating your boat's slick with paper towels, to avoid breaking waves in a major storm, making very little headway and very little leeway, includes the use of the bridled para anchor that they recommend for heaving to in storm or hurricane conditions. Until their para anchor is deployed, they make a bit of headway and leeway just like everyone else when hove to without the parachute.
