Where is Crotch Island?

Besides in your imagination.

A case of convergent evolution. Unless the Crotch Island area was settled by West Coast Scots.

The Crotch Island (there are many in Maine waters) that Chapelle drew the pinky lines from is in Casco Bay (and called Cliff Island now): http://books.google.com/books?id=RzbsxR5Nj4gC&pg=PA139&lpg=PA139&dq=crotch+island+casco+bay&source=bl&ots=hkAvIfufN0&sig=Dhe2X5gfMCbyrjDRoJ7ShaDUL5E&hl=en&sa=X&ei=tgXgUoWNLMPlsATrjIHIBQ&ved=0CDUQ6AEwAg#v=onepage&q=crotch%20island%20casco%20bay&f=false

Thanks, rb. Those islands look heavily glaciated— mostly rock, I'd guess.

Nick sent me this great pic of the home waters of the 'west coast skiff' in the original post.
