Hi Joan!

Cocos Point could be the first one (for which we already have an entry - we're just missing the "Cocos Point" alias) as is the only one inside Panama Bay (the other two being on the Atlantic).

For Shiru, it could be the actual Isla Farallon del Chiru, no hints yet on the other alias... i'm reading "Seiners Rock" though...

Hi Matteo!

I was just going to suggest that Leiners (sp?) Rock might be Seiners Rock, but I didn't have any luck finding that either ;)

Chiru for Shiru sounds logical!

Great find Randi - I like Chiru for Shiru. I looked at the Farallones - obviously I wasn't very careful - ooops  :-[

I understand why you both tried 'S' for Leinara or Leinars Rock. He does have a very curly Capital L.  :-\

Thanks very  much, both  :)

It was Matteo's find ;)

Looking at the Lat and Long near the top of the page, L looks like Le, so maybe Linara or Linars Rock :-\ :-\ :-\

I'm convinced it is an 'L' I wondered about 'Le', but I'm pretty sure it's just 'L'  :-\
