A Whitehall in Singapore

Roberto Mancuso runs a boatbuilding business in Java, and is currently in Singapore exhibiting at their boat show. He is also taking the opportunity to supply a tender he has built to John Gardner's 14ft Whitehall design copied from an original in Mystic Seaport. "It's a very interesting boat with a long long story.I just loved it from the first look at Mystic," Roberto writes. If you happen to be in Singapore from the 15th to 18th April, she will be on Roberto's stand on the Waterfront Promenade.
She looks lovely, and the sliding seat should enable the owner to get some serious exercise in before getting back aboard the yacht. But what is the hand doing on the gunwale? Is there a stowaway?
