Voyager Tip #6 Getting a Handle on Your Bucket
The bucket is perhaps the single most useful tool on a boat especially when paired with a scared sailor. So lets give that bucket some respect by improving the handle from wire to rope.

Feed the 1/2 inch line through the 5/8 inch holes from the inside out then figure eight knot each end.
