Given the choice between Booby-Hatch and Scuttle, I would refer to it as a "stern entry way". But then I think my boat's a trawler, so what do I know.

Thanks a bunch Tad.

Funny how things come full circle sometimes, in that if I make too many jokes about Booby Hatches I'll end up in the doghouse for sure

Here's a photo (of a rather high profile one)(taken with a 4x5 camera ) from the site Tad linked to; 45. Oblique view of booby hatch showing aft and port faces. Photograph by Russell Booth, June 1989. - Ship BALCLUTHA, 2905 Hyde Street Pier, San Francisco, San Francisco County, CA
