[Coral-List] Ocean Surface Drifter ArcGIS issue

I am having trouble displaying ocean surface drifter tracks in the South 
Pacific with ArcGIS 9.1.  My positions are between 140E and 155W (WGS84) and 
8-35 S.  I cannot make a continuous map because I cant seem to get rid of 
the Atlantic centered map view.  Tried changing the central meridian to 180 
and reprojecting the files with a 180 meridian, but no luck.

I was able to create continuous tracks by converting all positive longs to 
negative, but then I get an unusable shapefile becuase of an inconsistent 
extent error.

Has anyone had similar problems?  Any help would be appreciated.
