Not sure if I remember this correctly, but were not Leprosy hospitals called "Lazarettes" as well?

Jim
Lazaretto: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lazaretto
Apparently named after a different Lazarus though.

We wintered a couple of times at anchor in Spinalonga Lagoon in Crete. The island at the head of the bay was a leper colony housed in the ruins of a Venetian fortress. Suffering from the disease is bad enough, but the stigma associated with it and rejection from the community must have been dreadful.

The colony was disbanded rapidly in the 1950's when antibiotic treament was provided. We tend to forget what a powerful impact these drugs have had.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

A few more photos from our latest fix.

One drawback of going bigger with boat size is that the gap between the seats becomes too large to allow feet to be braced on the opposite seat. Foot supports down the centreline then become very useful. The triangular profile is also a good brace when standing to scan the horizon.

KM have made these nice and chunky, not just token bracing. Lovely Yildou from KM, who has been the photographer of these updates sent to us, is modelling the use of the foot support here:

And another showing the floor of the cockpit. There is a padeye between the foot supports to clip our harnesses on in a central position so that they can be as short as possible while allowing us to reach all the cockpit winches etc.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Hmm.... Got my alloy fix again.... coming along beautifully !!!


We just had an aluminum tank move in a few slips down... It is stunning in functionality... I only had a few minutes to peek... I was accused of owning it, and didn't know it was hiding on the other side of a huge trawler (stickless)... "I WISH!" was my self dialogue...

My only other experience with aluminum rag flyers was Beowulf when she was berthed in Marina del Rey... I kinda fancied her as well...

I'll take some pics and figure out what she is!

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Wow, with as many ankle breakers as my boat has, what a beauty it is to see boatbuilders take into account all those little things. The cockpit triangle foot thing is awesome, and yeah cool shoes Yildou!

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

You know noelex and Seaworthy, I actually will be sad when this begins to look like a finished yacht.

There is something so masculine satisfying about this raw stage of the build...

Are you talking about the fitting to pressure test, or the recess for the anode?
