Hi, according to one of our users, the "City of Seattle Rock" doesn't exist. I was also unable to find any information about it online. Should it be removed?

Cheers,

Konstantin

I find this shallow:
http://www.geonames.org/5790157/city-of-seattle-rock.html

I do find some indication that it exists.
"(400) City of Seattle Rock covered 1½ fathoms, is 200 yards offshore on the south side of the channel, 2 miles east of Shannon Point."

Could it be that your users take the feature for a city?

Hi Marc,

thanks for the clarification! Yes, that is a possibility. I will let them know that it is not.

Cheers,

Konstantin
