Then I flooded the boat rapidly through the deadlight till the water came to the level of the coaming.
"Fully committed," muttered Denman, as he drew back from the deadlight.
It was hot in the room, and rather dark, as the deadlight to the poop-deck was fogged by sea water.
Then he entered an opposite room—all were unlocked now—from which, slantingly through the deadlight, he saw lights.

Then Ross casually glanced at the deadlight, and violently forced the girl to her seat.
Remembering his embarrassment of the morning, Denman did not seek the deck, but looked through his deadlight.
He drew back to avoid a brick that threatened to enter the deadlight, and the conversation ended.
As the deadlight had been closed over the port, the state-room was illumined only by a gray half-gloom from the cabin.
Under this head may also be mentioned the Funa'l or deadlight, which was lighted in some churchyards at night.
