Narrative

mainly submerged N of Aitcho Islands, English Strait. Following survey from the Chilean patrol ship Lautaro (Capt. José Duarte Villaroel) on CAE, 1949, the names Banco Cocheco [from the diminutive for José, the captain's name], Roca Cuca [from the diminutive name for the wife of a CAE officer] and Roca Ripin [from the nickname of one of the captain's daughters] were applied to unidentified parts of this feature (Chile. DNH chart 1405, 1949-50; IHA, 1974, p.79, 89, 242). The reef was resurveyed by an RN Hydrographic Survey Unit from HMS Protector in 1967 and named descriptively Chaos Reef (APC, 1974, p.3; BA, 1972, p.48; BA chart 1771, 8.vi.1990)
