At very slow speeds - equality

It does indeed equal 0.1 knot = 0.1 mph
Higher speeds the decimal differences add up.
1 knots = 1.15077944802mph - go nuts for knots at low speed
Paddling involves distance so you'll probably be out for an hour
Accuracy at speed (dynamic) vs.
accuracy standing still (static)
are two different animals of error
I still say the _skeg effect_ is tough to measure accurately
and repeatedly in a natural environment with handheld gps units
If the unit ""smooths out"" the track then its
simply not recording true distance.
