Is China providing all ships with new charts to include the extra bits they are building in the SCS?

They've got those maps which are hundreds of years old and which they use to base their supposed claims on. Maybe they can dust them off and texta in where these new lighthouses are. Besides that there will be many Chinese army and navy personnel crammed into these constructions because many hands make light work.

Face it, long before there were Europeans passing through the South China Sea, there were Chinese sailors and fishermen plying it, for thousands of years.  Lighthouses are courtesy of China.  You are welcome to pass through, in safety and with speed.  If you want to threaten its owners in the name of passing through, just remember, these islands are surrounded by shoals and reefs that were the graveyards of thousands of ships.  Gunboat diplomacy?  Let us emphasize the diplomacy, and forget the guns or the boat, no, not on the South China Sea.
