Emmett Cephas (mis-named Emmett & Cephas in this blog and Emmitt & Cephas elsewhere) at Potter’s Cay Dock, Nassau, c.2000. Photo courtesy of Capt. Calum Legett, who believed the boat sank in 2001. From this photo, the way that the light plays on the bow, it would appear she is constructed of wood, though this is not verified.
