Take a waypoint if you like at the marker and log it online. Go to the “Ready for the Jetty?” page and then click on “...all nearby benchmarks” Match up your coordinates for a reverse search and log it - usually you take the coordinates and then hunt down the benchmark)
The West coordinates are 072’ 32.XXX Take the first three digits of the date on the benchmark and add 263. This equals “XXX”
