Never heard of streaming a drogue astern while hove to. Given that the boat
should be drifting slowly down wind
, I expect it would slow the drift of the stern and thus cause the boat to lie broader to wind and waves...not what you want.
Off the bow might help reduce forereaching.
Would be interesting to try.
Ditto for reading about the Pardey's technique, but that uses a sea anchor
not a drogue.
