Waterboat Point (USA) 64° 49' 00.0" S 62° 51' 00.0" W Point
Name ID: 133460 Place ID: 15767

The low westernmost termination of the peninsula between Paradise Harbor and Andvord Bay on the west coast of Graham Land. This feature has "island" characteristics, but it is only separated from the mainland at high water and is more usefully described as a "point." The coast in this vicinity was first roughly surveyed by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition in 1898. This point was surveyed and given this name by T.W. Bagshawe and M.C. Lester who lived here in a water boat from January 1921 until January 1922.
