I have also been experimenting with this technique. I recently bought the dvd "storm tactics" by the Pardeys. I thoroughly recommend the DVD as it runs through the technique in excellent detail. The full keel of the W32 is ideal as it helps generate the "slick" they refer to. Most people I have asked about this technique are not aware of the 'slick' or turbulence effect which is supposed to be generated when properly hove to. The Pardey DVD explains the importance of the turbulence created by the hull slipping sideways and its affect on breaking seas. I haven't yet perfected the technique but I'm hoping to get plenty of practice before I actually need it.
