Re: Issues with heaving-to

I would suggest you purchasing a copy of Linn and Larry Pardey's book Storm Tactics Handbook, 3rd Ed. | Sailing Blog | Lin & Larry Pardey It has all the information you'll need and make life a lot safer for you.

Using the information I garnered from this book I was able to easily obtain the needed 50-degree angle to the waves necessary to heave-to in comfort.

Good Luck,
