running N-S between Arrowsmith Peninsula and Hansen Island, Loubet Coast, was seen from the air by BGLE, 25 February 1936; surveyed from the ground by FIDS from "Stonington Island" in 1948 and so named because the channel gave an impression of such narrowness that a boat could not pass through without scraping her gunnels (gunwales) on either shore (APC, 1955, p.11; BA, 1958, p.95; chart 3571, 14.vii.1961).
