I have this covered . My resident anchor-holic is also highly skilled and knowledgable when it comes to electrics (and he's not bad at a few other vital things as well ).

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

random question and I don't want to thread drift at all but I thought I'd ask since I'm kind of deciding myself. Will you be doing a dripless shaft seal or traditional stuffing box on your prop shaft?

Dripless shaft seal, a PSS. We have one on our current boat and it has been brilliant. Bone dry bilges are great to live with, and are especially good for an aluminium boat. This is another reason we are opting to go for a deck stepped mast again.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

I just googled the origin of the word "lazarette" and found this explanation in Wiki. It is quite macabre:

"The name derives from the biblical story of "Lazarus". On the old square-rigged sailing ships it was located in the bow of the ship. The original purpose was to store the bodies of important passengers or crew who had died on the voyage, (lesser seamen would be buried at sea). It was a large locker obviously, and was situated at the bow in order that the stench of rotting flesh was blown away from the vessel rather than across the decks. All that remains from these origins is that it is still generally the largest locker on a boat, and it's still known as the "Lazarette"."

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

So when the ships would reach their destination, would all of the corpses in the lazarette come back to life?

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

I have a gut feeling that old Lazarus got a good laugh out of that tale.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

Another photo of the cockpit and "garage" below it (no way I am ever again calling it a lazarette ):

Garages are for storing vehicles. My stand up paddleboard counts as a vehicle .

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:

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

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.
