I will be starting the Core Sound 20 soon enough, but a friend who is a montgomery 17 fanatic asked me to ask about how to right a Core Sound in the event of a capsize. So......
What is the righting method for the Core Sound boats

Grabbing the centerboard will usually right one, if you're able to get right back to the boat, after it flopped over. If she's had a chance to fill with water to some degree, you'll probably have to climb up on the centerboard ,maybe grabbing the rail and she'll roll back onto her belly, pretty easily.

Unless you stick the masts into the mud. Don't ask how I know that.
