Gordie at Cigatoo reminded us last winter that, on our charts and gps, 1 degree is 60 nautical miles, 1 minute is 1/60th or 6,000.076 feet, and one second is 101 feet. Thanks, Gordie!

Thanks so much to our volunteers who give these reports!

Please remember that we are just trying to help out with these reports. You are the captain of your vessel so the decision will be yours alone.
Updates thanks to Jill P.
