I think "gut" is a fairly uncommon word. > According to Wikipedia: > Gut (topography), relatively small coastal waterway connecting larger > waterways But even there, it is only on the disambiguation page; there is no actual article for it. > Or it is an american term that is uncommon by the British? ;-) That may be true, but as an American I would say it is uncommon in America also :-) A few people use it; see for example: http://www.lat-long.com/ListLocations-1-Illinois-Gut.html That site also refers to a gut as an inlet or slough. Those are much more common words in America. I wonder who picked "gut" for the Garmin usage? Interesting. - Alan -- Alan Millar am12 at bolis.com
