Narrative

Channel, 0.5 mi wide and 7 mi long, situated in the S part of Hanusse Bay and separating Hansen Island from the W coast of Graham Land. First observed from the air and roughly charted in 1936 by the BGLE under Rymill. Surveyed from the ground in 1948 by the FIDS who gave this descriptive name. The channel gives a false impression of such narrowness that a boat could not navigate it without scraping her gunnels (gunwales) on either side.
