Actually, since you were hove-to, you were probably considered restricted in your mobility, and as such were the stand on vessel, not the give way vessel.
While I may be wrong in this I don't believe that is the case as my understanding is that any vessel with restricted maneuverability, whether due to fishing, draft, length, towing, or other causes, have the right of way over vessels not so restricted.
Being hove-to is probably a valid other cause for a sailing vessel, as would being in irons.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
