what is where and when is when?
The subject refers to two mind twisters we have. We have been diligently charting our positions and where possible, usually, checking islands and reefs and etc on on paper charts, the electronic charts and guide books.

Very surprising and disconcerting in this day of digital mapping and google earth. Anyway, more work for plotting.
As to when; we have read over and over that
