It must be that Wide Island; I'm on the 5th now, too, and they're at Shelikof Strait.  No mention of Titcliff Island on the weather-side page.

Titcliff Island is the island between the mainland (Cape Kayakliut) and Slaughter Island!  No place resembles that name from 4 Sept, though.

As a matter of fact, it is: http://forum.oldweather.org/index.php?topic=3643.msg75109#msg75109
Our members are too polite (and respectful of forum rules) to make an issue of it - and bird lovers to boot ;)

I know that, Carolyn, but I kept a private google map when I was transcribing ships that didn't believe in giving us lat/long readings, putting markers on a saved map.  I found it very useful when I wanted to search historical charts for names shaped liked the scribble, and knowledge of where we came from the day before or were going the day after that helped pin it down. 

There are many ways to keep track of your ship's location, very few of which are grounded in the specific day's transcription since they get used as backup when that is less than helpful.  I offer this as a possibility.


You are right, Randi, I forgot to search the discussion thread for new names.  Being polite bird-lovers (truth!) doesn't seem to dent our sense of humor much, nor our ability to do it while maintaining family-friendly vocabulary.  :)

I can't work out what it says before 'Wide Bay' but they've been in the Wide Bay at about 57.38/-156.33 (on main land opposite Kodiak Island)

I think it's Shannon, for Mount Shannon probably.

I'm just going on the current book - I can't tell if there are any orphan pages scattered thru-out waiting for a 3rd transcriber.  But these are the pages I see:

next one to transcribe: http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ow3/final/USCS%20Yukon/Book%2025/IMG_4727_0.jpg
book back cover: http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ow3/final/USCS%20Yukon/Book%2025/IMG_4742_0.jpg

that makes 15 pages left, and the last 2 are blank.  :)

Mt. Shannon!  Yes!  Thanks, Caro! 

And thanks for the Google Maps suggestion, Janet!

No more pages for me.
As the log writer said, 'Finis'.  :)

Splice the mainbrace! Dress the ship overall! (Probably best to do those the other way round)  :)

I'll tell the PTB to change her to VAL - she is DONE.  When I go to transcribe, I get sent to Abatross.  :D
