Note that the wave train frequency that sets up roll oscillations would be limited to some very specific frequencies.
So, say you are motoring in a seaway where the wave train (or a harmonic) is the same frequency as your boats roll rate. Would it reduce roll if you hoist some weight up the mast until the roll rate of the boat is different than the waves?
