Bare Teak

Ben,

I think that the boat in the picture is Roger Olson’s Nereus.

Attached is a photo of Xiphias’ scuttle hatch being varnished after a re-build (took out the aged and leaking Lexan windows and removed the grab-rails and bronze bars). There is a mirror on the forward inside surface of the coaming to reflect light from the portlights and newly installed bullseye prism (from Classic Marine in the UK). The underside of the scuttle hatch itself is also painted white.

regards,

Mark Fuller
