Which of the rock islands off Warnbro is known as Tub Rock?

 Navionics has Second Rock, Third Rock, Passage Rock and the Sisters. From memory it is either Passage or Third Rock.

 A lot of people think its passage rock because from shore it kind of looks like a boat. But after fifty years of living in the area and spending a lot of time on the water i have always called third rock tubs. passage rock is named for the thats where the boat used to come in hence the lead lights, although i have seen the cray boats come in through the gap between passage and tubs (third rock). A lot of people used to call the sisters The Seven Sisters, but there is only three of them. Safety bay was thought of a safe anchorage for the early sailing boats going up and down the coast. There used to be a bay where the nuns convent is now, you can go on line and there will be a map showing it or go to the museam if its still open ??
