Simple explanation here, Nauticed website has lots of lots of good tips.
I always heave-to for lunch or drift fishing with the tiller lashed to leeward but get a bit confused on wheel steered boats.,anyway in my limited experience different boats need different setups to sit nicely hove-to.
Great craic to stay in the slick and relax in choppy seas, guests are always impressed.
