Whatever she is, she is marked with group flashing green tower buoy.
She is in 16 fathoms of water, with a sounding depth
to the hazard ( water cover ) of one fathom. It doesn't look like
a new map, but they may be marked in metres rather than fathoms.

I'll think about the "eight"

The chart is in Fathoms issued in 1979, so not a small ship !
Treeve must have been looking at his Symbols and abbreviations used on charts issued by the Hydrographic department of the Admiralty!
and free with every copy of Nicholls's concise guide ,"Hell Deckboys can read it too!!

Got it all as pdf files ....
If anyone wants to know where, ask ....

I was reckoning she had to be "on the large side".
Liner or battleship.
