By the way - what is the anchor type on Kiwi Roa ? Looks good.
i think it's an Ancora Latina with a big hoop welded onto it. I wonder why someone did that?

I've just finished going through a re-run of the Antarctic series. Quite wonderful.

Craig, thanks again.

Great photos!

Difference between a power boater and a sailor out on the water: A power boater is going some place special, a sailor is already there.

JimHawkins,
I believe the anchor is a Rocna. They have a wonderful reputation for strength and holding.

These pics are amazing. Thanks so much for posting and sharing. Talk about living vicariously while reviewing!

The anchor is definitely a Rocna. The ones asking about the anchor are all joking, as Peter invented the Rocna and I doubt that Peter or Craig would use anything else.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks for the comments all.

Except for the - oh nevermind.

Yes it's the very first Rocna, the prototype... There will be some, shall we say interesting, pics coming soon of 'anchorages' in the Falklands and South Georgia.
