I didn't realize that you could heave to with jib alone and have the boat balanced. Do you lock down the helm to do this?
I haven't messed around with my boat enough to know if this would work either. This is also the question I have about heaving-to in order to lower sails. Once you lower one of the sails the boat will no longer be balanced.
