    Don Silva of the North Texas fleet has devised an ingenious rig to easily right a knocked-down C14. It spares you from having to clamor up on the centerboard. The system is lashed to the mast and stowed in the gear bag on the cuddy. It provides a couple foot holds and a handle and really pulled the thing up-right. So the design was successful, but construction issues limited the devise to a single test.

    Good day for the North Texas boys on the LG!
