    The 16xx map by Robert Dudley the younger while in Italy after leaving England for good because he couldn’t get his father’s title is showing the 38 degree line at drakes bay of the Cermeno’s 1595 shipwreck. Cermeno was there for some time before he became shipwrecked and had a chance to take depths. Drake never reported depths of his anchorage.
    The mention of Drake (Draco) and Albion are both identifying the land claim he made from 48 to 38 degrees.
