Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Are the pieces being cut with water jetting?...or maybe laser?

Sorry, no idea.
The cutting was not done by KM. Cutting files were made for every thickness required and the cut pieces then arrived at the yard from the supplier. Edges look absolutely perfect - clean and smooth.

I don't know, we Laser all our aluminum for aircraft and only water jet the thick steel,
Lasers leave a rough edge that does have to be cleaned off though.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

I have had exceptional results with this polish on bare, cast aluminium Bomar hatches. Well, they were powder coated, then got bare, then I polished with this stuff about 12 years ago and never touched it again. Still no oxidation today, don't ask me how it is possible
I wouldn't use it on the hull but would on railings, stanchions etc.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Jedi,

If you don't mind, would you tell us why you wouldn't use it on the hull?

Finely sanded aluminium can simply glow in the sunlight, why not do the whole hull?

WOW SWL.... This sure is fun... Thanks for sharing the pics!

That's the way I want my next boat to look.

Dashew's power boats are like that; shame they don't have sails.

But that look is not for everyone.
Beowulf berthed at MdR for the longest time... I assure you she looked every bit the "business" on the exterior! Perfectly weathered grey patina... I'll find some personal pics, here's a web pic...

Jim... I LOVE that look...

Because I expect a blotted effect for large surfaces. The trick is to not get it too shiny I think, while for detailing like railings etc. this does work wonders. I believe it reacts with the aluminium-oxide to become a stable protective layer.

I do not see laser very often on aluminum thicker than about 4mm. And probably the thinnest plate on SL's boat will be 6mm (might have 5mm decks I guess), with some 8 and 12.

oh, geeze - you leave yourself wide open with that comment - but I will resist. But it can't be any real secret - I suspect whoever was the NA has the plans posted on their website to show off their latest work.

Yes, decks are mainly 5mm (with thicker sections or reinforcement at the bow and under bollards etc), but there is very little 6 anywhere.
Hull is 8mm and 10.
Smaller portions are 12, 15 and 20 mm with a tiny bit of 25 and 30.

----------

I am jumping out of my skin with excitement here.

I have woken up to find 25 more photos. Not just that, but the deck has been assembled. and all the bulkheads are welded on, together with the very first portion of curved hull and caprail.

Photos will follow. I'm too excited to do anything other than look at them for now .

Sorry . Super busy morning and we have eight for dinner tonight, so now I am chained to the kitchen sink .

I won't overload everyone with all the shots, but I will take a bit of time to make some notes about what each one that I post shows.

This is the rear again, but looking from front to back. The gap at the stern will be closed off by a drop down swimming platform. The side combing curves around at the rear to provide a very useful back support (sitting this way at anchor in the tropics will provide good airflow, whereas the pilothouse overhang will give good shelter sitting the other way when cooler). Cockpit seats are around 2m long with large hatches on each seat giving access to the "garage":
