Lettens Jan12/10/2013The UKHO position (id=16462), previously given for the SS DUNDEE was not correct. Instead that position was the one for SS VEGHTSROOM, which was positively identified by her bell by Colin Fairhurst. That position has now been moved to VEGHTSTROOM. The position we have now for DUNDEE is a calculated as 10 mile N x W from St. Ives Head and should be treated with caution.
