Voyage of the Boadicea from The Mauritius Command complete

The voyage of Commodore Jack Aubrey in command of the HMS Boadicea is mapped. The end of this map marks the completion of The Mauritius Command, which has certainly been the most challenging book to map. Patrick O'Brian's attention and level of detail, drawing from Josias Rowley's Mauritius Campaign in 1810, is a wonder to behold. The complexity of course lines circling Mauritus, Reunion and Rodriguez is evidence of his achievement. As always, I would welcome any comments or suggestions.
