Two posts about righting bucket, one for Getaway which also doesn't have a dolphin striker like the Wave:

viewtopic.php?f=14&t=9486

viewtopic.php?f=23&t=15709

This line from instructions I don't understand:

Quote:
1 .Run line around dolphin striker, pass through small loop and pull tight.


It can only mean that you loop the double line around the dolphin striker and then pass the line back through the double line just before the knot...

But why do you want a righting bucket on a Wave? As a drogue?

You must be a very light person to need a righting bucket, the Wave is relatively easy boat to right solo at 170 lb.

Creative has a LOT of great video's on this forum, but I think that clip of him righting the boat without touching the water is the best clip. I love watching that!
