Sorry Rusty, a sound guess, but off the mark.

It'd be a "channel", and is named for another land bordering on it.

Aaargh, mateys, pull out yer charts and find the bugger 'fore we run up on these rocks!

My computer is pretty sketchy about turning on. So I don't have the online presence and ability to game that I used to.

Out of curiosity I tried to google a definitive difference between a channel and a sound. It said that "usage is inconsistent."

I have concluded that a channel can only become a sound if someone is there to hear it.

It looks like Pirate gave the correct answer, but we'll wait for Sir W. to confirm that.

I'm sorry mates, we've a madman at the helm in the home port, and it's going to be all hands on deck for a bit to keep him strapped.

Yes, Pirate is correct.
