Re: Bestevaer 49ST

"One hand for the boat" is made hugely easier to adhere to when there are handholds everywhere. This particular handhold was was copied from the aluminium Stadships KM builds, and it runs the length of both the port and starboard combings, just inboard of the winches. By the way, the entire top of that wide combing is 12 mm plate:

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

The 12mm plate for the coaming sounds like a good plan, I guess it means you need minimal backing plates for the winches and it makes it very easy to add or shift hardware. It would also distribute all the winch loads into the structure very well. I take it that is the reasons. Still have to design my new cockpit so I am keen for ideas like this. Thanks

No backing at all will be needed in this area with the use of the 12 mm sheet. A simple solution that was KM's idea. Good for all the reasons you give. We like their thinking .

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

The next lot of photos has arrived, hot on the heels of the others.

My favourite one in this batch is the front from deck level, the first view we have seen from this angle. Twin double bollards that extend well below deck level have now been welded in. It wasn't clear from the plans exactly how the tube for the gennaker pole would be finished off, so the beautiful workmanship in the integration is so nice to see:

Happy, I thought the same thing .

I suspect the workers must be taking some pleasure in this build, both those actually directing the design and the craftsmen welding it. A lot of shortcuts could have been taken here and weren't.

We are thinking of having the welders engrave their names on a piece of alu and weld it somewhere visible, maybe on the rear of the rear bulkhead so that it is seen each time the starboard locker is opened.

They don't get much recognition normally for their skills amd this is definitely not "run of the mill" work.

Agreed!

They seem to be taking "long cuts" ! Going the route of artfully functional whenever they can... I think your "This vessel Crafted By --- " plaque is a spectacular idea...

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

How high are those bollards? ie. do they sit above the bulwark?

The top sits above, but not the horizontal spikes. The camera angle is deceptive, as there will be plenty of room to wrap thick lines around the bollards.

Re: Bestevaer 49ST

KM have just installed a 2.6 m long alu workbench with a removable return at the end, in what will be the workshop.

The area above the bench will be insulated like the rest of the living quarters and lined. The area below will have removable 5 tread alu plating.

A huge circuit board will back into this space at the forward end of the bench, giving easy access to wiring:

Yes, they will, but the rounded top of the toe rail will smooth the path just as a fairlead does. I know proper fairleads are better, but this is how KM have built a couple of dozen Bestevaers without any issues, so we did not ask for modifications here.

At the stern we have "proper" fairleads.
