Ujung Batakarang (SE Sumatra)

Characteristics

Description

The coast of Sumatera (Sumatra) from Batakarang Point trends NNW for about 65 miles to Tanjung Jabung.
The entire coast is very low, covered with wood, and fronted by a mud bank that, within a depth of 9.1m, in places, extends about 13 miles offshore.
It may be approached to a depth of 9.1m, except off Tanjung Jabung, where the 10m curve is barely 1 mile offshore, with less than 3.7m close to its edge.
Vessels bound for Selat Berhala, when approaching Tanjung Jabung should keep about 8 miles offshore until it bears 270°.

Tanjung Batakarang was reported to have extended nearly 1 mile E of its charted position.
