Subject: righting a 16

Having fairly recently bought a 16 i thought that i would soon learn how to right the 16. At the moment i and my crew are unable to right the boat without assistance. I have read every book i can find ad we appear to be dong things correctly, but we just cannot get the mast to come out of the water. I have a mast head float which adds a little weight to the top of the mast but we just are unable to move it.

We must be doing something wrong but we don't know what!

Any suggestions?
