Hi DeepFrz
My only suggestion is to restart your device. My fallback regardless of what goes wrong .

If this doesn't work let me know what device and software update you are using and I will pass it on to Tech Support.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

The third and final watertight bulkhead being fitted (still looking from front to back). The technician is standing where the pilothouse will be.
This is the trickiest bulkhead of the lot, as it needs to fit snuggly around the inverted cockpit. It attaches about a quarter of the way back from the front of the cockpit (you can see part of the cockpit sticking out):

An unblockable internet psychological analysis has determined that you would suffer irrevocable brain damage from viewing these pictures. be thankful that the powers that be (internet gods) have your best interests at heart.

I have a similar but less intense reaction (simple envy) and thus I am allowed to see them.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

And finally a shot from the rear looking forward. The technician has his hand on the third bulkhead that was seen in the previous photo. This bulkhead separates the pilothouse, saloon and galley from the rear storage areas.

With the engine bay being a sealed compartment as well, this will give us five watertight compartments in total:

"Giddy" is putting it mildly

I need to keep pinching myself that this is for real.

Awesome Jim...

Pictures here seem to flicker a bit... So I must have a bit more of a complex envy!

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Not a boat building photo this time, but our first piece of soft furnishing.

Two years ago a close friend started making me an awesomely intricately pieced and appliquéd quilt for our new boat - a 2.2 x 2.2 m mariner's compass. I have had progress photos, as for the boat build . It has just been finished .

To digress from welding for just a moment, this shot gives a bit of a feel for how our interior will look: simple and uncluttered, timber floors, white walls and ceiling (no overhead cupboards anywhere), leather seating (but in navy). Kitchen benches will be stainless steel, as at home.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Back to welding .
More photos have arrived .

Lots of progress in the last week.

Frames and stringers are making an appearance. This is the port side of the owners' cabin with the shower and head compartments:

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Front starboard shot also shows that the framework for the front locker hatch (next to the chain storage box) has also been welded:

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

I love this photo. It just looks so improbable. Hopefully the engine box will never be oriented like this again :




Inverting the photo gives a better perspective. The pilothouse floor is directly above the engine box. To starboard is the workshop. To port is the guest bed with a huge cupboard at the rear for spare bedding and linen etc.
The companionway opening can be seen above the engine box to the rear (an opening in tne cockpit combing can just be seen beyond this). This will have a hatch that slides down. A second layer of sliding flyscreen and security bars will be incorporated:
