There is an error in the first sentence of the article. "...at about 7 knots per hour...." A knot is one nautical mile per hour. The correct form would be ....at about 7 knots....

A knot is a measure of distance, as a mile is a measure of distance. Distance traveled over time is speed. When talking about speed in boats it is not usually refered to as knots per hour, simply knots. The same as you would say you were doing sixty five on the highway.

You're wrong Dice. A "knot" is a measure of speed which equals one nautical mile per hour>

Go Ray and Linda,
We are also avid boaters. Although not retired, we love to hear of fellow boaters living the dream. Best of luck to you.
