They are also asked to report any special attention shown by any member of the staff, as it is the wish of the management to recognize efficiency.

SOME INTERESTING SEA FACTS

DISTANCES VISIBLE AT SEA
At an elevation of 5 feet, one can see 2.6 nautical miles; at 20 feet 5.1 miles; at 35 feet, 6.8 miles; at 50 feet, 8.2 miles; and at 100 feet, 11.5 miles.

DISTANCES MEASURED BY SOUND
If the steam from a distant ship's whistle is seen, and if ten seconds elapse before the sound is heard, the ship is just 2 1/10 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 1/5 miles.

WATCH AS A COMPASS
Point the hour hand of the watch to the sun. The south is then exactly half-way between the hour hand and the 12 on the watch.  For example, assuming it is 9 o’clock, point the hour hand (indicating 9) to the sun, and due south is then exactly half-way between the figures 10 and 11.   Similarly, at 4 o'clock, south lies over the figure 2.  For a.m. times, of course, you should read forwards to 12—for p.m. times, backwards.

NAUTICAL MILES
The statute mile is 5,280 feet.  The nautical mile is one sixtieth of a degree of latitude and varies from 6046 feet at the Equator to 6092 feet at latitude 60. It is generally interpreted at 6080 feet, which is the Admiralty “measured mile" for speed trials.
6 feet = 1 fathom
600 feet (approx.) = 1 cable
10 cables = 1 nautical mile
1 nautical mile = 1.15 statute mile.

WHAT IS A KNOT ?
The “ knot ” is not a measurement of distance, but of speed. “One knot” means one nautical mile per hour.

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.
