PWC Kilometers vs. Miles Per Hour Conversion
When I hear a person say to me, I got my PWC up to 70 MPH! My first thought is that the LCD meter was probably locked into the KM instead of MPH, as I myself have never seen my MPH go over the 60ish marks and I'm a solid rider in comparison to those who stake claims. It's interesting as if the top speed is the keynote of success, but I guarantee you that was not a steady fixed speed, possibly only momentary. And to be able to look at the LCD display at those speeds in anything but perfect calm waters is heroic for a sustained confirmation, as so many things take place quickly 'at speed'.
Here is a conversion from Knot to MPH that can be handy for you, and check your digital displays!
- 5 knots = approx. 9 km/h
- 10 knots = 18.5 km/h
- 20 knots - 37 km/h
