I've never done any "plumb bobbing" but I was wondering, if the
problems are from the wind blowing the bottom weight around,
would it be possible to place a pan of water on the ground right
under the weight. The water would allow the weight to move and
seek out its desired position but it would also help to delay more
rapid movements caused by the wind.
This theory may be full of holes and, like I said, I've never done
anything like this but it was just a thought.
