Thanks for this tribut to Bill Tripp as I own one of his last custom design boats. It is 1970 US-46 yawl GRYF II (previously Glen Eagle) and she still is in homeport of Bill Tripp Port Washington - for the past 20 years. I am trying to keep her as much original as it can be. I love this boat which is very seaworthy. I sailed her more then 50,000 miles over past 20 years and I did not have any major failures. Surpraisingly fiberglass is in perfect condition. She will "float" as long as one will neglect her and she is as save boat as the save boat can be. She is also very good long distans racer. Thanks to Bill Tripp and his new approch to designing boats.
