    Re: SI Units

    I examined the application of the metric system to navigation quite a few
    years ago, and came to this conclusion:
    
    My proposal for adapting the meter to navigation is to define a new
    unit, the nautical kilometer. It would be 1/60 of a degree at the
    Equator, and with this new unit, we would be in consonance with the
    metric system, and yet able to do business as usual, with only
    minor changeover pains. And if some diehard insisted on using the
    archaic nautical mile, he could still do so without discrimination.
    And besides, who would know?
