Answer my question. On the boat, 15 knots, 2-4s, by yourself. And thats mild conditions.

No problem. It is not complicated.

In RI, they skip that dropper loop and use an 8 oz egg sinker above the barrel swivel.  And it works.

I guess it is called the 'improved snafu rig' and I learned it from a guy who has also been fishing his entire life. Maybe you can answer the original question and provide some intuition into your go to/favorite rig rather than chirping mine. I'd love to hear what you've used the last 60 years.

Oooh touchy aren’t we. We bust them here. Get used to it.

That would also pretty much end your tangle problem.

But people will look at you weird and snicker in NJ, until you out catch them.

You of all people know that the rig means nothing. NOTHING

This is true.  It is also true that I recently watched dude and his girlfriend drag up about 35 keepers... "that's 18 for me Davy, you'd better get moving or it will be a long ride home"... using exactly that rig.  So, IMO it does work as well as anything else.
