Would higher gunwales tend to increase or decrease weathercocking, all other factors being equal?

My guess is, higher average freeboard, all other factors being equal, would move the aerodynamic Center of Effort ("COE") forward and thus decrease weathercocking, but I don't know. Am sure that Lee and others could confirm or refute your speculation. Lee?
