P424 is on a distinguished road
A lot of the old Bahamas charts were old English charts and some islands are way off. Then again I have run the ICW from Vero to Cocoa Florida at night and the plotter was dead on. I have seen an area in the Abaco's that depths were miss-marked and showed over 10 ft and actually on another up to date chart was more like 5-6ft. Dont trust verify always.
