Distances VISIBLE at Sea

At an elevation of 5 feet, one can see 2'6 nautical miles; at 20 feet 51 miles ; at 35 feet, 6'8 miles; at 50 feet, 8'2 miles ; at 75 feet. 9'9 miles and at 100 feet, 11'5 miles.

Distances MEASURED By SOUND
If the steam from a ship's whistle is seen and ten seconds elapse before the sound is heard, she is just 21-1, miles off. If one second elapses, she is distant slightly more than one-fifth of a mile; if five seconds, a little more than 1 mile; if twenty seconds, 4,!,' miles.

WATCH AS A COMPASS
Point the hour hand of the watch to the sun, and south is exactly half-way between the hour hand and the XII on the watch ; e.g., assuming it is 9 o'clock, point the hour hana (indicating 9) to the sun, and the point half-way between X and XI is due south ; or assume that it is 4 o'clock, point the hour hand to the sun and the figures II indicate south.

Tonnage
There are three kinds of measurements of ships by tonnage—Gross tonnage, Net tonnage and Displacement tonnage.

Gross tonnage is the total internal capacity below the upper deck, and also of all enclosed deck houses above it, measured in tons of 100 cubic feet. For example— 4,250,000 cubic feet equal 42,500 Gross tons.

Net tonnage is obtained by subtracting from the Gross tonnage all spaces used for the accommodation of the officers and crew, for gear necessary for the working of the ship, and for the machinery, including boilers and engines.

Displacement tonnage is the total weight of water displaced by a ship when loaded to its utmost capacity.

Knots and Miles The statute mile is 5,280 feet.

The nautical mile is 6,082'66 feet. The number of feet in a nautical mile is arrived at thus : the circumference of the earth is divided into 360 degrees, each de4ree containing 60 nautical miles 1 • or 21,600 (360 x 60) nautical miles to the earth's circumference ; 21,600 divided into 131,385,456—the number of feet in the earth's circumference—gives 6,082'66 feet—the length of a nautical mile.

The " knot " is a rate of speed indicating one nautical mile per hour.

6 feet— 1 fathom. 10 cables-1 nautical mile.

600 feet-1 cable. 1 nautical mile-1'15 statute mile.
