blue crab 11'


I'm new to the forum. Have enjoyed reading about the Vagabond 14 and its necessary wind conditions.

I have a used Blue Crab 11' and have never tried to right her. The Blue Crab has a centerboard; I have experience righting Sailfish (you stand on the centerboard and wait until the sail empties its water). The Blue Crab has a proper cockpit (unlike a Sailfish), so I'm sure having a tool with which to bail would be necessary.

What is the technique for righting this little sloop?

Thanks a lot for any tips!
