Here is a good shot of the danger of navigating in waters not yet surveyed. The SKA boat to the right in the picture go full astern, which is indicated by the dark exhaust cloud around the boat. The engine is really working hard!
It is trying to avoid collision with the submerged rock to the left in the picture. See the white foam where a wave is breaking over the rock.
The other SKA boat in the background steers away from the danger area - - -
