The object rotates in rigid body

Hey.
I have a problem with an object and you do not know how to fix it, the truth is that this never happened.
I'm making a barrel that floats upright in a wave, you asigo rigid body mass and assigned him asking me Realflow.
The simulation begins well, but gradually the barrel is turning until it is horizontal, I played all the parameters and I can not make it stay upright.
You can advise me what else to do?
A greeting

Try attaching a heavier object to the bottom of the barrel.

Thank you for your answer.
I guess I'll have to do with multijoints, they?

Hey,
I think it has something to do with the mass center of your barrel. If you put the center down to the bottom of the barrel (sorry but I forgot how to do it, but I think you have to change the pivot point?!), it maybe should float upright.

Thank you.
I actually lowered the center of gravity and barrel no longer turns.

Hello again.
I'm stuck with the scene of the barrels.
I tried to do the scene with a wave and was not very good.
Now I'm making with Hybrid, but the barrels up to the surface.
I tried them I have lost more mass and center of gravity, but still rising.
Can help me?
thanks

Open File -> SummaryInfo and check your barrels' Mass values. Try to match something realistic (or something far beyond in order to test things).

Thank you.
But there is no way that barrels work correctly.
One means of simulating perfectly, the other keeps going up.
