So, if a ship is travelling at 5 knots, then that would be the equivalent of 600 knots in a rope. Can't remember the exact correlation between knots and mph, but 5 miles would be 8,800 yards, so that divided by 600 would give 14.7 yards between each knot for mph. I have a vague notion that the ratio is 1.1:1 so a bit more that 14.7?

:nope: (cocked up the last bit of the calcuation)
A shop travelling at 5 knots would be equivalent of 5 knots in the rope.

1 Knot/hour is the equivalent of 1 minute of latitude on any meridian.

Agreed .... 5 knots of rope per 30 seconds, so with a very long rope that would equate to 600 rope knots per hour. Divide the physical distance travelled in that hour (5 nautical miles) by 600 to find the distance between each rope knot.

Latham's career was interrupted by WW1. He had played for City in the Southern League and then one game in 1921 at the age of 41, so becoming the oldest league debutant and still the oldest player to play for City. I am pretty sure someone did a thread on him on here recently.
