Okay, I looked at the pages but it seems to me that I am only seeing white, the back part of my hands are unseen. Here is a suggestion: In the sign for boat the part of the hand furthest from the eyes and touching the other hand could be shaded or their might me a way to move the "b" hand to appear "skinnier" than when it is fully flat?

You know, those handshapes are rarely used...

But Stuart, you are correct that when there is more white in the  
symbol, you are seeing more of the palm of the hand, and when there  
is more black, you are seeing more of the back of the hand.

So in the sign for BOAT, you are seeing more of the palm. I have now  
added my version to the US SignPuddle:

Has this answered your question, Stuart?

Val ;-)
