Read the full Chart History here:

Anthony De Mayne, the Admiralty surveyor charged with surveying the Outer Abaco Islands, reached Marsh harbour and its outer keys in 1817. He makes the comments that Man of War and Elbow Reef are 'the most dangerous part of North Abaco' and that in strong winds 'ships find it very difficult to keep off the shore on account of the strong indraught over the reef'. The surveyor, despite the artistic presentation of his chart is doing his job. His soundings, marking of the reefs, shoals, sand-banks and other obstacles to the passing sailor are clearly done with a view to presenting the most accurate picture of how to survive in some of the most treacherous waters in the Bahamas.
