100 cubits (just over 5 m) long[edit]

100 cubits is not 5 metres, nor is it 5 miles, and i can't think of any other measurement starting with m that would be right. Perhaps "just over 50 metres" was intended. That sounds about right. 198.142.19.137 (talk) 12:01, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Yep, my bad! I thought I was good at maths, but was totally thrown by the picture. Is it really a good idea to illustrate a page about a 50m long boat with one not more than 20m? Bigger digger (talk) 13:03, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
Replaced picture with a larger boat. Better?--Doug Coldwell talk 13:30, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
Yep, I've fiddled with the caption for a better link and clarity, hope that's ok. Bigger digger (talk) 14:02, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
Looks good to me. Tweaked the caption a little further to have as a 2 line caption (on my screen anyway).--Doug Coldwell talk 16:38, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
It's 3 on my screen, which now means I've got monitor envy..! Nice editing with you. Bigger digger (talk) 17:00, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
