I've dragged a milk crate before for that reason...
Tried again on Friday used only a jib and winds where about 15 knts. This worked very well also we caught 23" and 24". I was not able to try heaveing-to because we wanted to head SE and of course the wind is coming mostly N this time of year. I always forget to drag a bucket ( I have never tried it ).
Very effective and much stronger. Not the dime store version. A real creamery version.
