    I have a Tsunami 140 that I love! I was sad to see your rating of just 2 stars but understand your frustration. I bet you can find the help that you need on the Wilderness Systems website. I was all over that website learning about the Tsunami before I purchased mine. Let us know how you like your Tsunami 165 after you take it out for a spin! I'm thinking of getting a longer Tsunami!!!
