Classic vs Club (differences)

The "Classic" was the original Wave version. We designed it to disassemble easily for car top or storage. It uses a cable system and Velcro straps to tension the trampoline. The standing rigging attaches to the hulls with a couple of kinds of hooks.

The "Club" uses a standard lace up trampoline and the standing rigging is attached with clevis pins and rings.

The Club Wave is the better boat. Only get the Standard Wave if you must disassemble it for a car top.

Creative, thanks for your input. Can you tell me why you think the club is better than the standard?

The general consensus is that a tight tramp is desirable. With the Club version, you can really snug up the laces, and they'll stay that way. With the Classic version, it's hard to get that much tension on the drawstring; and you have to re-do it each time you re-assemble the boat. Lots of people want to convert a Classic Wave to Club version. I love my Club Wave!

can a classic be converted to a club? about how much would it cost assuming I had to buy new parts? any special skills involved in the conversion? I am looking at a 2001 wave that appears to be a classic.
-thanks

If it has the trampoline tracks installed on the hulls... and not just the three stainless hooks. Yes.

Cost of a trampoline and lacing line.

If it has just hooks... no.

MYTH: Patrick Green I would argue is the best Wave Racer out there and he destroys people day in and day out on a classic. Mimi also has a classic. You can tighten the tramp on a classic pretty tight if your eqipment is good.
Just find a good deal on a boat, and put good rudders on it no matter what.

The difference between the std rudders on my '99 boat vs. the EPOs I put on from my 17 (with a modified crossbar and tiller stick) was night and day. So EPO or the white race rudders I would think.

You have to make sure there's not a loose nut on the tiller. :roll:

It must be the Wave Classic cup holders that make him so fast! LOL I have never heard anyone want to convert a Club into a Classic, but lots of people want to convert a Classic Wave into a Club version.

Get a Club.
