Narrative

submerged rocks between Eddystone Rock and Start Point, Livingston Island, were known to the nineteenth-century sealers as a navigational mark and hazard near the entrance to New Plymouth, and so named descriptively (Fildes, 1821b; APC, 1962, p.25; BA chart 3205, 23.xi.1962). Pointers (BA, 1916, p.393). The rocks were photographed from the air by FIDASE, 1956-57.
