These were the quickest pictures I could find to demonstrate the effect.

The one showing the hand is front-lit, the dots are highlighted & reflect the light back creating a more opaque effect.
The one looking out the window is backlit, so the frit creates shadows and fades into the background.
Distance from the frit has an effect too; closer = more transparent, further = more opaque.
On a boat, the backlit (transparent) view would be from the interior looking out, while the front-lit (blending) effect would be from exterior looking at the hull.

Why do you guys feel the need to comment on things you don’t like about this boat? Post pictures of your boat and let us pick it apart, doubt many of you would be willing to do that.
I have posted pictures of my boat and it was picked apart. I have thick skin though as im sure this guy does too. The boat is one awesome build. I dont think there is a thing wrong with the lines. That thing is a machine.

What I don't like about this beast is just that it isn't mine. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and everyone can have their own opinion. Some mermaids are more attractive to me but I don't see any that should be keel hauled!

Free country, free opinions. Leave the online oppression to Facebook.

I love the lines and the finish. Don’t care for the hullside windows, but I didn’t lay out the cash to build the boat so my viewpoint is worth bubkes.

I think it looks awesome
Great lines and color!
I’d still like to know what the fuel but is at cruise 25 knots.
Hope the owner has many voyages on her. Where will it be based out of?
It is 50+ an hour. Take a look at the fuel consumption curves for the engine.

Seriously... the boat is incredible and was a ton of work. The weirdly critical commentary only discourages others from sharing their projects.
