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 .

The base plate is now in place.
We have a new neighbour. Estarzinger, part of the expedition boat you were enquiring about earlier is now on our starboard side:

What is the "expedition" boat? Is it a Bestevaer or another design? I guess I missed this posting before.

Brief mention of it was made earlier. It is a 78 footer designed for ice exploration. Not a Bestevaer. KM build all sorts of custom boats in alu.

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 :

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

mmmmm sippin on some mornin' coffee and staring at aluminum, great way to start the day. Is the ice exploration vessel going to be a sailboat?
