      Interesting. I tried heeling to a certain extent. With the standard old BW helm, you're standing fairly far aft and you're not in a good place to affect the heeling.

      I probably should have run a line thru the CB hole and let it hang to get some area down there.
      I won't go down in the annals of clever skippers.

      The upshot of this and another windy day experience is also to use a sweep oar in conjunction with a troller. Have sort of decided to convert to a push pull tiller somehow to allow standing or sitting further forward.

      Whack-boing! It's dub!
