No one has addressed the specific condition.
Your at a protected anchorage. There is no danger of large continuous waves.
On occasion a single 1 foot roller comes in caused by the wake of of boat.

In this specific case would some extra weight in the rigging have the effect of damping the sloshing?

Any natural motion would have the probability of causing the boat to oscillate so weight aloft would only help for the first couple of seconds then would cause even worse oscillation.

But with a single wave caused by a boat wake, what do you think?
