OK, I'll try again. The detour started here on the Aberdeen Promenade (production probably hired a few of those "Big Bus" sampans).
Restaurant teams disembarked here at the Ap Lei Chau Waterfront Promenade, then walked a block or so to Ap Lei Chau Main st.
In the (Phil) cap below, you can see a distinctive tree and a small lighted "umbrella stand" on the opposite shore. I would match it to this location, which means that if you turn the camera around you can get a good estimate of where the crab boat was anchored.

Sorry for the delay! Took a while to figure out what Trevor/Chris did in Prague after the telephone Roadblock (which might also explain their elimination).

As noted here, teams were directed to Romantický Hotel U Raka after the Roadblock. Trevor/Chris decided to travel by metro from Dejvická Station to Mustek Station, switching to a taxi there.

The problem is Mustek Station is on the other side of the river and nowhere near where they needed to go! Dejvická Station is already the closest station to Romantický Hotel, which is just 1.5km/0.9mi away. The extra time they took would have cost them around 40min, squandering their chance to jump ahead of Jessica/Cody, who were stuck finding a taxi.

Leg 7: Imire. I'm not quite sure which route the Bush Whack Detour took.

Leg 8: Harare. The U-Turned teams faced an uphill challenge; the two sides of the Detour were 3km/2mi apart.

Leg 9: Bahrain. The race covered most of the country geographically, not a bad course for our maiden trip there!

Leg 12: San Francisco.

Thanks all who've helped out in this thread, with special credit to Slowhatch!
I've gone back to update some of the earlier maps, including the one reflecting the full race course. If you're linking to the maps from somewhere else, remember to update your links!

You need Google Earth (or maybe just Google Maps)
