Barbelo writes “I doubt that the orientation of the boat pits could cast any light on their origin. Two of them face N/S and the third respects the causeway which does not face due east and also doglegs towards the north after exiting the plateau.”

Thank you for your thoughts on this, Barbelo. I discover that I am trying to detach a ship from its moorings…without success. It’s not the ultimate direction of the causeway that would be of any importance. It seems quite clear that the other two boats have simply been moored at the most prestigious spots, like millionaires’ yachts in St. Tropez, so north/south is entirely logical in their case. And, of course, I may be completely wrong in considering the possibility of any importance in the skewed orientation of the causeway boat pit but still… I’m still curious about where that navigation line would lead. Not sure that it would lead to Polynesia first! - although the image is striking. The Vikings had some pretty impressive ships too – and they used them for burials.
