They just are supposed to provide resistance against rolling, high enought to be effective.

Theory is, beam wind, worst rolling, flat sail prevents rolling back into the wind ...and small sizes may be enough.

Suggest most read up on steadying sails despite knowledge of sailing, similar in toll reduction, but really 2 different animals.
so the enclosure may be helping also. instead of hindering ?
