Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Another of the photos received on Friday.

I like the undistorted reflection of the ladder :

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Oh that video made me nervous, if that was my boat I'd have been beside myself worrying. Photos are looking amazing I love the attention to detail they have and how they are curving the aluminium.

Just go to a marina and fly to Holland to see the flip. It's not like you'll be in Aussie when it happens

It's like a carpark but for boats, except the pricing is based on you perceived wealth which is calculated by your boats size

That sounds just like a caravan park. I always preferred pitching a tent in the wild .

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

These are some of the rest of the hull plates, shaped and ready for attachment. I bet the craftsmen breathe a sigh of relief when the patchwork seams all join up :

I am sure they would make you welcome. We may even schedule a pre Christmas visit ourselves, so it would be great to get together.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Looks amazing, a question though. That bow thruster tunnel - why so far away from the bow? Surely, closer to bow / farther from center of lateral resistance gives better mechanical advantage?
