>> Statement: [Page 123]

Wright describes the island of Madeira an “atoll” (coral reef).

>> True Information: Madeira is a volcanic island with a huge mountain of over 6,000 feet. To the uninitiated, this may seem like a small matter. To the seafarer, mistaking a 286 square mile island for a small coral atoll would be disastrous.  This is more sloppiness.
