Re: 'black' port holes

Show us a photo, please. I'm thinking a black surround to the port lights is unusual, possibly black anodized? but why????

Black anodized aluminum portholes is not uncommon. Can you rub any of the "black" off?

Re: 'black' port holes

Also could be black plastic of one type or another. What kind of boat is it?
