Description (see definition): The outermost of three rocks lying close NE of Busen Point, at the SE side of the entrance to Stromness Bay, South Georgia. The name Low Rock was given for this feature by DI personnel during their survey in 1927, but this name is used elsewhere in the Antarctic. Following the survey by South Georgia Survey (SGS), 1951-52, the feature was remaned Bucentaur Rock after the floating factory Bucentaur, which was anchored at Husvik in the early years of the whaling station after 1907, and from which the Husvik transport Busen and the catchers Busen I, II, III, etc., derive their names.
