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.
