Characteristics

Description

Fair Channel Bank (1°33'N., 103°03'E.) consists of two narrow ridges, with depths of less than 18.3m and about 3 miles apart, lying almost parallel with the coast. The bank extends about 22 miles NW from a position about 14 miles WNW of Pulau Kukup (1°19'N., 103°25'E.).

A wreck, with a swept depth of 25.5m, lies about 20 miles WNW of Pulau Kukup and a wreck, with a depth of 23m, lies about 10 miles WNW of the same islet.
A long narrow shoal, about 8 miles long in a NW-SE direction, with a least depth of 9.1m, lies with its SE end about 12 miles W of Pulau Kukup. Southwest of Long Bank are numerous similar banks lying parallel with it, extending to within a short distance of the banks fringing the Sumatera side of the strait. An obstruction at the NW extremity of Long Bank is marked by an lighted buoy.
