Vripack

What a great boat ! Our Vripack is 49 ft but single story , so much less interior space .I suspect yours is like ours designed by Dick Boon the original founder of Vripack . Many similarities to Zeemeermin. Wishing you as much fun as we are having with ours , down under !

Those appear to be Pooles (HHP). So Gotwex, how have your anchors performed - have you stressed them in heavy conditions yet?

They have performed quite well. Worst conditions with them (original ones) were in sustained 30 knot winds for 4-5 hours one night and a 40 knot squall that hit once for 30-45 mins. Just upgraded the Pooles to a pair of Mason anchors that are 50% heavier. Went for the bling factor as well as more security with the higher weight.

That is one nice looking vessel. Maybe we'll bump into you up here on the Chesapeake. if it were me I'd hang around the nice weather for 60-90 days and then bring her up. No rush to get up here and freeze your stern off.
