I recently found some great photos from the USCG rescue of SY Satori.
This is the Westsail 32 that washed up on an east coast beach after the owner was evacuated in The Perfect Storm.
I think it's interesting from the photos below that the skipper chose to "lay ahull" instead of "heaving to." I've never hove Mico to in winds and seas like these but I have in 40 knots or so. Lying to definitely does not sound like a fun option to me - basically you just take the sails down and let the sea do what it will with you.
