p.8 The Bolivia Shoal - A survey of the shoal where the Bolivia was wrecked was made last week by some cadets of the R.M.C. It lies in a straight line joining the south-west end of Cedar Island with the lighthouse at Knapp's Point, and is about a mile from the latter. Like the Myles shoal it is the top of a rounded rocky hill, rising from a flat muddy bottom. The shallowest water was twelve feet. The space within which the depth is less than fifteen feet is about 80 feet across. The ice over the shoal was very thin.
