Re: Sailing 201 Quiz

If it's your Sabre 38 with a 6'6" fin keel you may decide to place all your crew and weight on one rail and then the other to pry yourself off, but I would not boather to attempt getting off. Why bother! The conditions you stated were "no wind & can't use the engine". You're probably better off stuck aground than drifting off with the current and with no means of propulsion.
