The survey or chart is especially interesting for a number of reasons:  First of all, the hydrographical information is very well detailed and is accompanied by some excellent notes on the best channels and passages through the islands.  The notes specify where the best anchorages are and even offer a guide as to what may be expected in certain places;  'In the passages and also in Drakes Channel the Current running quick over foul ground causes a Ripple which wears the appearance of danger..' .  The chart contains several remarks at places where ships have previously struck upon rocks and also where there are sunken rocks which offer a hidden danger.  The safest channels are similarly marked; 'the round Rock passage is by far the best, Vessels bound to the Northward bu hauling up under the Dog Islands are at once clear of everything'.
