It has been amply illustrated in the previous section, 'Anchorages', that soundings are more a way of showing the reader where he can find bottom rather than how he can avoid it. Because there are so few shoal areas close against the land in Papua New Guinea, and consequently there are very few parts dangerous to navigation (excepting reefs), my soundings reproduced on the maps which accompany the anchorage descriptions in Part Two of this book lack a high degree of accuracy. Indeed, in many cases one whole metre can safely be added to arrive at the true depth.
So, while I may have been a little slack in this department I have at least erred on the side of safety.
