Channel Islands records tagged as off-shore

The DDb is flagging up quite a lot of records for the Channel Islands as off-shore when they are actually OK, eg. ... 3298d335b1. Many of these records are within or intersect island boundaries as shown on DDb maps.

Thanks very much for reporting this. The problem looks to be more complex than I first expected. For some reason the polygons associated with many of these grid-squares are wrong. I'll post a follow-up once the squares are repaired.
