Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Seven of our eight double bollards. These have only been tack welded at the moment. They will penetrate the deck and be welded to the bulkheads below:

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Meanwhile, the pilothouse roof and cabin top are also evolving inverted.

Pilothouse viewed from rear to front. The rear roof extends out, creating a bit of protection from the elements when in the cockpit. A handrail runs along the rear rim:

When the boat is assembled, final welded and painted, it will be hard to remember that it once looked like this.

The welds will all still be visible inside our cavernous lazarette and front locker and engine bay, and also each time any of the floor is raised, so these will serve as permanent reminders .

Moving a little further forward with the camera the cabin top roof can be seen beyond:




Details of the skillfully executed welds on the underside of the centre of the pilothouse roof seen above:

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Are the progress photos a standard thing for all customers or did you ask for them?

No, we did not ask for the photos, but they have been very appreciated.

I don't know if this is standard practice for KM. We are unusual owners in that all planning, negotiations, signing of contract and start of build have been via internet (email and Skype).

Even since construction commenced we have had just the one visit and the next one won't be for several months. I think most owners they are building a custom boat for visit the yard regularly, so photos are less necessary then.

I still can't believe you are not going there to see the hull turned over. I could understand it if you were in Aussie, but not when you are in Greece.
