We hove-to three times this Spring before crossing the Stream. Each time 35+kts from the N, 8-10 ft seas. She heaves-to like a dream, slipping directly downwind with the upwind slick preventing waves from breaking on the side of the boat. Only two small waves slapped us on the beam in a total of 180 hours hove-to. Able to sleep, cook, read. Then crossed the Stream in 10-15kts from the SE.
In 35+ kts I have a handkerchief of jib and about a third of the Mizzen out with the Mizzen traveler halfway up the windward side. If you haven't experimented it's well worth your time to get a feel for it.
