When beholding the tranquil beauty and brilliancy of the ocean's skin, one forgets the tiger heart that pants beneath it; and would not willingly remember that this velvet paw but conceals a remorseless fang. - Herman Melville

Islands off Sakonnet Point Question
« on: June 24, 2018, 10:01:51 AM »

Does anyone know the names of the two small islands just south of West and East Islands? They're not named on my nautical chart.

Also, if someone commits a crime in the waters just south of the islands, who has jurisdiction? A lawyer friend who once worked for the RI AG said in this case it would be the State Police.

FWIW, I'm writing a very long short story (which I may expand into a novel), part of which takes place just south of the islands. It's a whodunit but you know whodunit; the challenge in proving whodunit and how he did it.  ;)
