Grays Harbor (USA) Ports
« on: August 24, 2023, 03:12:26 PM »
I just recently noticed a port in the United States that seems to be separated from what should be a "parent" port.

Within the ports listing, "Grays Harbor, United States" exists as an umbrella port area, with two sub-ports:

Aberdeen, Grays Harbor, United States
Hoquiam, Grays Harbor, United States

As a result, I had often uploaded photos taken at the small fishing port of Westport, Washington under the parent "Grays Harbor" location, since the town is at the harbor entrance, about 20 km west of Hoquiam, the nearer of the two other ports. Just yesterday, however, I noticed that the location list now includes a port of "Westport, United States" with a lat/long (46.9086, -124.105) that corresponds to the town on Grays Harbor.

Given that Westport is associated with the greater Grays Harbor area, and is even the base of operations for the Grays Harbor pilots, shouldn't it be listed as a Grays Harbor sub-port as well?
