      No daggerboard on Birdwatcher and no experience anchoring Dovekie in a blow but I suspect the daggerboard would help some. We surely must have tried the centerboard down in anchoring the Birdwatchers without preventing the swinging. The bucket idea is similar to the idea of veering out a drogue astern and I think it would help or at least shorten the range of the swinging. I didn't have my Birdwatchers long enough to confront this problem and possibly solve it.

      Just curious, did you try anchoring with the dagger board down? How
      did that effect the stability at anchor? The physics of why boats
      swing around their anchor escapes my logic. I also wonder if dropping
      overboard a 5 gallon bucket on a rope might tame things.
