After a few minutes, the scrape is hauled on board and the waterman culls the contents. He keeps the legal-size crabs, separating them into compartments (peelers, busters and soft crabs), then tosses the remainder back into the Bay. This cycle is repeated many times each day. Crab scrapes are typically 24-32' in length with a deadrise hull, box stern and shallow draft. Most have an overhead canopy for protection from the sun.
