Nautical miles are for sailors !!
Not sure why tho cause it takes them long enough to cover a statute mile let alone a nautical mile.

Another excuse for them to get somewhere late and not pick up the check.

I know this will clear things up for you immediately.

For those of you who need to know:

1 nautical mile is equivialant to 1.15077945 statute miles.
1 statute mile is 0.86897624 nautical miles.

1 knot = 1 nautical mile per hour = 6076 feet per hour
1 mph =1 mile per hour = 5280 feet per hour

"Hey Joe, how many knots does you new MTI go?"
Just doesn't sound right...


Definately statute miles, and mph for the performance crowd.
