St. Anthony Bight

Log said St. Anthony Harbor, but given the bearings, ship is really anchored in St. Anthony Bight ::)

From the USCGS Northland:

Coburg Island: http://www.geonames.org/5924587/coburg-island.html

Dexterity Harbor: http://www.geonames.org/5938913/dexterity-harbour.html

River Clyde: This seems to more generally refer to the entire Clyde Inlet, rather than just the river itself; a town named Clyde River exists. http://www.geonames.org/5924336/clyde-inlet.html

Cape Christian: http://www.geonames.org/5915629/cape-christian.html

All added to map, ref & csv. Thanks Danny!

From Beluga 1900 (Sept 12)

Horton River
69? 56′ 1″ N, 126? 48′ 10″ W

Smoking Cliffs
Closest I could find was smoking hills:
69? 31′ 1″ N, 126? 33′ 9″ W

All added to map, ref & csv. Thanks Joke Slayer and welcome aboard the Geographical Help Board!!
For the Smoking Cliffs agree they're the Smoking Hills (most probably the ship is referring just to the coastline of that wide area)

Thanks for posting those!

According to this they are cliffs - and they are smoking.

Thank you Joke Slayer!!  :D

If you find the metric lat and Long that quickens things for Matteo who logs all of these places onto the reference boards

E.g. Toker Point: 69.65351, -132.83346  (Geonames ref: 6167280)


Thanks for looking these places up - it's great to have your help here.
