I don't think those are scuppers. I'm sure there is a nautical term for those things, but since I don't know what it is, can we call the Floogle Holes?

I think you are referring to a hawse pipe. The *sometimes* brass hole in the hull which the lines or chain gets fed through.

As Steve Martin said, "Those aren't pillows!"


The openings in Andy's pictures are "hawse holes" through which docking lines go. Note cleats.

Don't know who hawse is, but I bet no one is paying any royalties to the heirs.

The scuppers in the picture are not the hawse holes, but the pathetic little holes in the deck that are drained via a hose at waterline. I think I am developing a case of scupper envy.

Now I see them. Yes, they are pathetic.

Andy, the chance meeting, and the beer, were most welcome. We look forward to showing you over Doriana, in Sydney or at our next visit to Pittwater. Was is unlucky slipping on the stairs the yard provided, good to hear he is improving, with time.
Hope those perfectly restored teak decks are ok post inundation. BruceK
