I'm reading this for the knowledge and expected it to be dull, but it's actually quite interesting! So far I've learned that a fathom is 6 feet, the distance of one degree of latitude to the next is 60 nautical miles, and a nautical mile is 1852 meters. Ostensibly I've also learned some things about reading marine charts, but they are still largely impenetrable to me - maybe that will change after I read all about buoys! All of which reconfirms that I am a dork.
