A picture of our tattered charts which got submerged in our capsize 1000nm off the Japanese coast.

We charted our position on these daily despite them being nearly ruined.

@neauoire Telecom Engineering is so deep into my veins all the time I read 1000nm I read 1000 nano-meters and I'm like: OH VERY ACCURATE MEASUREMENT

@ekaitz_zarraga haha I often do the same myself. I had it, but we don't use the metric system much for our nautical system, I'm not sure why..

@neauoire @ekaitz_zarraga
With the risk of mansplaining this:
it is easy because it is (almost) equal to 1/60 of a degree of latitude.
Also, shortening to nmi instead of nm might help.

@neauoire those seem like the sorts of documents that should be printed on tyvek
