Does anyone have a system for cleaning crabs remotely?  My wife and I will be staying at a campground where we won't be able to clean our crabs without bringing some kind of system to do it.  I was looking into some portable "showers" as they're called for potentially spraying out the guts.  If you have any recommendations on how you do things, it would be appreciated.  Thanks!

When we don't have access to a hose we use a knife to scrape out all the guts & gills, then when that's all done we dunk them in a bucket of water to clean them the best we can

A portable 12v bilge pump might also be an option to squirt them out?

After removing the top shell, hold the body under salted water in a 5 gal bucket ....with a spoon you can now scrape away 95% of the undigested food, the guts, the feculence, the yellow junk, and what ever toxins are in the abdominal cavity....

The best advice that I saw on here. It's a good thing that there is only one way to eat a crab, I am a de-sheller myself but then it is not for everyone I'm sure ! If you have a 5 gallon bucket and excess to a hose you now have the tools to do the job. Take the shell off and clean as much of the GUTS out into the empty bucket then with your hose spray a small amount of water into the crab cavity directly into your bucket. After your crabs are cleaned empty your bucket into a salt water creek nearby you will not be polluting the water with that water it is biodegradable, wrap the shells up real good and dispose of them in the dumpster. that is the way I used to do it when on the camp ground.

Steam them and clean them before hand, leaving just the inside body intact. Refrigerate the body until you are at the campground. Enjoy!
