Naming of parts[edit]

I propose to call the whole reef Smits Reef, with the other diving names applied to specific parts of the reef.

  • The Maze can only refer to the jumble of boulders at the south east corner. This complies with common usage and will not be controversial.
  • Horseshoe Reef will be used for the north eastern part, where the reef curves round the big indentation. It is the only part of the reef which in any way resembles a horseshoe that I know of.
  • Birthday reef may be used for the part of the reef which was originally given that name if I can find out which part it is...
