    Krakatau - coordinates seem to place us ON the volcano!
    Looks like we are on again tomorrow at 10am.

    Some interesting info on Krakatau:

    I also found this interesting:

    Maskit said this in the Challenge 10 topic; however, I think it is important to note here.

    There isn't a 6 degrees 61' South, 105 degrees 25' East.

    Using 7 degrees 01' South, 105 degrees 25' East places you off the shore of Banten, Indonesia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banten

    By the way, you will need to zoom out.

    PS: Is there a way to edit a message you posted?

    Your right DarkStar!

    This was my reply to maskit:

    When I googled Krakatoa - it won't take Krakatau - these are the coordinates of the volcano:

    6° 6'12.77"S (661s)
    105°25'35.82"E (10525e)

    Close enough for Volvo as usual!
    They will most likely change it before tomorrow! If past history repeats itself!

    Well:Are we gonna count volcano burps for our next coordinates?

    JBell,

    I just read your post on Challenge 11 about this... you are correct.

    Krakatau is at 6 degrees 6' 1" South 125 degrees 25' East... I guess 6 degrees 61' South, 125 degrees 25' East is close enough for them. I wouldn't want their navigators leading my ship.

    Perhaps this is another mistake, like the buoy. Well, anyway... Using the coordinates you suggested, here is what you get.

    LMAO... I probably shouldn't navigate my ship either...

    So I wanted to type:
    6 degrees 6' 1" South, 105 degrees 25' East

    Just remembered the lightning strikes challenge from Volvo I!!!
    Hope we don't have to count the streaks of the lava flow for each eruption on this one...............
