The 20 000 leagues in the title is actually the distance they traveled in the sub and not the depth.
But only the distance they travel under water right?......... :wink:
lol, I was in the navy for 8 years and never heard the term "league" 8)

Who knows? A league is measure of distance traveled, and not a measure of depth. I believe fathom is a measure of depth.

But a league is about 3 miles, so 60,000 miles under the sea. Which would put you about 52,000 miles out into space. Please don't check my math, I suck at math.
cool, thanks.

a Fathom is like 6 feet, I think.

So in nautical terms you have:

fathom = depth
knots = speed
league = distance

? How the hell did sailors end up with three different units of measure?

Both times I went to Disney World as a kid (3 years apart) it was shut down for construction, kills me to this day that I never rode it. Looked so cool even completely drained.
