Narrative

between Arrowsmith Peninsula and Adelaide Island, S of Hansen Island and N of Day Island, Loubet Coast, was presumed to exist but not seen by FAE, 1908-10, following survey in January 1909, and tentatively shown as a channel (Charcot, 1910, p.129; 1912, Pl.2); called Charcot Strait after J. B. Charcot (Charcot Bay, q.v.) (Balch, 1911a, p.86); seen from the air and surveyed from the ground by BGLE in 1936, when it was found to be narrower than indicated by FAE (Rymill, 1938a, p.307, 311); called Loubet Strait in association with the coast (USHO, 1943, p.153); following resurvey by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in 1948, named The Gullet because the feature forms a constriction through which the tide flows between Hanusse Bay to the N and Laubeuf Fjord to the S (Fuchs, 1951a, p.402; APC, 1955, p.11; BA, 1956, p.76; chart 3570, 21.ix.1957). Angostura Gullet (Chile. DNH, 1962, p.193; IHA, 1974, p.145).
