    George had already given a most precious indication in NavList [12591] on 
    Mar 29, 13:20, under the following form :
    
    QUOTE
    
    The position given, at the foot of the page, for "Omahareno" harbour,
    within Passe Rautoanui at the NW corner of Ulieres (more commonly named
    Raiatea), can be compared with modern values from Google Earth.

    You can also fully confirm George's indications here :
    
    http://cartotecadigital.icc.cat/cdm4/item_viewer.php?CISOROOT=/oceania&CISOPTR=576&CISOBOX=1&REC=1
    
    
    Now, when you return to Google Earth, you easily recognise the Ohamaneno 
    area and without almost any doubt (George could fully confirm here since he 
    might have the appropriate nautical chart(s) of the area) the Vessel was 
    anchored very close from position S 16°45'36" and E 208°30'20". Given the 
    geography of this site, this position is most probably determined within 
    less than ONE nautical mile error.
    
    They were adequately sheltered there from the trade winds (from the East) 
    and George could confirm or refute this statement.
    
    =============================
    
    Sorry I haven't been able to respond until now. I am sure that's the spot. 
    And it corresponds with John Robson's map which he gives in his "Captain 
    Cook's World), which I attach.
    
    George.
