As a general rule, if you have boatspeed (forward) you're not hove to--you're forereaching. Your only motion should be sideways, and it could easily be a knot or two. A little work on trimming her to head up a bit more should pay off, perhaps by reducing the size of the jib, a little less backing of the jib, or sheeting the main in a bit more.

It sounds like you're real close.
