M/E operation in adverse weather conditions

Hello!
Do you have any tips or recommendations for the protection of the M/E (especially liners and piston rings) when sailing in adverse weather conditions?

Although you will get guidance from makers manual. Still it’s better to reduce RPM in Rough weather condition. Also pls if ship is ME/Bor C Running mode of engine to be changed from RPM to Torque mode. On older MC engine manual need to activate rough sea mode .
