Narrative

S of Spigot Peak, Errera Channel (q.v.), Danco Coast, was known to whalers from 1911 onwards (Birch, chart, 1911); roughly charted by AAE, 1953-54, and called Puerto Lote [=chance harbour] (Argentina. MM chart RO, 1954). An Argentine refuge hut called "Rada Lote" was established on the cove, 23 December 1953, but within days was destroyed probably by a gale (Thomas, 1956a, p.166). Puerto Marinero Lagarrique, so called by AAE after a naval cook who died in a crevasse accident in this area (Argentina. MM chart 129, 1957; Pierrou, 1970, p.505). Following air photography by FIDASE and ground survey by FIDS from "Danco Island", 1956-57, the feature was named Selvick Cove after the whaling ship Selvick which was wrecked in the vicinity, c. 1911 (APC, 1960, p.7; BAS 250 sheet SQ 19-20/4, 1-DOS 1974). Lagarrique Cove (USBGN, 1965, p.100).
