My boat swings allot at anchor and I was think about perhaps attaching a kite to the stern to keep it stable. Has anybody tried this? I know they make a product to attach to the boom but I have been told that they are a pain to set up.

I was looking at these.

Or perhaps a used surf kite.

Re: Kites

Or perhaps a "Riding Sail".

And ➥ Anchor Riding Sails - Do They Work ?

And ➥ Sizing, design for riding sail
