'Seaplanes are thought to be an invention of the recent century......The wrecks of these machines have long since deteriorated but there is one example which survives intact and this is to be found in the channel between the south coast of Costa Rica and the mainland. It will be discovered by dredging the sea floor in the region bordered by the 7th parallel that runs through the aforesaid bay. Take a line drawn on the map from the eastern tip of the island peninsula and join this vertically downward with the horizontal as projected in the map. You will thus find a small area of shallow waters.'
