Possibly the most incredible cruising photos I've seen... it's quite another world "down there".

Thanks - amazing photos.
You mentioned that the boat was built with the trip in mind - any details of it posted somewhere?

There were quite a few aspects that looked interesting.
Reminded me of the boat a friend of mine was building years ago, he used to work on the ferry that crosses bass straight - he had a lot of respect for the ocean.

"Behind us, unforgiving rock and breaking waves awaited us should the anchor have failed. Had we dragged and the bow wiped off, we would never have been able to bring the bow around into the wind before ending up driven ashore. Fortunately, the Rocna anchor did its job true to reputation."

Wow.

This is probably the most incredible cruising report I've seen on Sailnet. Thanks very much for sharing it with us Craig.
