Narrative

between Foyn Point and Cape Disappointment (q.v.), Oscar II Coast, was roughly surveyed by SwAE in October 1902; called Sandefiordsbukten, as the E entrance of Wilkins' supposed Crane Channel (Crane Glacier, q.v.) (Aagaard, 1930, end map); resurveyed by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in 1947 and 1949, and so named, in association with the cape, because the disturbed nature of the ice shelf in the area caused difficulties for sledge parties (BA chart 3570, 27.vi.1952; APC, 1955, p.9; BA chart 3570, 27.ix.1957).
