After season 1 I took a stab as to where Craphole Island (Get the pun? I noticed only recently) would be. I didn't believe the crash was real, and knowing that the Losties had been rendered unconscious, I knew they could've been relocated to any tropical coast.
The radio distress call in French sounded like a plea from a disease-ridden French-speaking area, and I didn't believe it had anything to do with Danielle Rousseau. The Beechcraft referenced Nigeria. I thought those two items might've been out of the control of the makers of the illusion of the "crash", so that they could give geographic clues. They point to Nigeria and Cameroon.
I also figured Damon would work in an Illuminatus!
allusion. (It goes with the 23s and the conspiratorial nature of the plot.) So Fernando Po(o) fit just fine. http://users.bestweb.net/~robgood/teach/GetLost.html
for my analysis at the time including this. I figured Craphole was likely to be either on or near Fernando Poo on the Bight of Biafra.
With the recent confirmation of the Beechcraft's being from Nigeria, and more importantly the seeming unlikelihood Mr. Echo's shot-in-the-chest brother would've been transported far, I decided Fernando Poo/Bioko is exactly where they are. The southernmost part of the island seems to have appropriate features.
