Re: Bestevaer 49ST

The sight lines and shape is really nice.

If you were ever concerned about needing more room (height) at entrance for a heavy lift out, like your engine....a soft patch above entrance could be built in at this stage, with the hope that you never need it.

LOL! We are struggling with that right now.

Very likely the mainsheet clutches will be moved from the rear of the pilothouse onto the cockpit combing. That seems a better spot for them anyway. This should then leave room either side of each rear window. We are just waiting to hear back exactly how much room we have there, allowing for the mainsheet itself.

Stay tuned.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

I think the no slider is pretty common when you have a door instead of the conventional drop boards. The ones I've been on, typically have a small bump to help raise the entrance height and a step down/well right before the door.... like the Boreal.

But with the p-house height and deep cockpit of the Bestevaer, I'd think you'll be alright.

The necessity for entering the boat fully upright was never a major requirement, but I would have loved a pair of watertight cockpit doors with secure dogs, such as the Exploration 45 has, rather than the single door of that Boreal. These doors are totally impractical for the way we live though and the area we will most likely eventually end up cruising. They really only have one good position - firmly shut. Open they interfere with sitting space (or air circulation while sitting) and partially open does not seem to be an option at all.

Regardless, I still can't shake the appeal .

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

More details spotted with this last batch of photos:

Our swimming platform has been cut out. I can't quite get my head around how easily portions can simply be sliced like this, and others temporarily welded on, only to be removed with a trace following a light sanding. I bet this could be sealed up in a blink if so desired. Alu must be an amazing material to work with.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

SWL,

Something to consider now: friends who designed and built their own ally boat have hinged openings (the hinges are like piano hinges) in the coaming to accommodate the tails of the lines that come through the rope clutches. The "lid" of the box has a cut-away portion to allow them to close with the lines inside. it keeps the cockpit very tidy. They have a lot of lines, because they run 4 with each headsail, to allow both inboard and outboard sheeting, and all lines come back to the cockpit. They ran a few through the on-deck handrails.

I'm so glad you guys are sharing this. I just really love seeing the boat take shape, and find it both graceful and beautiful, as well as STRONG.

Ann

Hi Anne,
I'm glad you are enjoying watching the build process. It has been a real thrill for us.

Thanks for the line storage tip. There is not much room on the top of the combing for any lids, as we will have 6 winches, but we have four openings in the combing sides to stuff the tails of lines.

The word "strong" keeps popping up . Not surprisingly this was first item in the design brief. "Simple, reliable, low maintenance systems" and "leak free" were way up there too. With just two of us on board, "manageable essentially singlehanded" was another requirement. The list grew from there .

SWL

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

SWL,
I have been a lurker on this thread since it started. I get excited each time a new post is added in the hopes that new pictures are coming my way! Selfish yes. You have put a great deal of thought into every,last detail and it shows. I can't wait to see the finished product. If I knew the Netherlands better I might actually sneak over and see it...
