This is exactly the post I thought of when I saw {morgh} as KWOTD. It's a
very well-reasoned calculation of the {'uj}. (My only caveat is the poster
doesn't agree with the ILM size chart's original length of 360 feet, or
110m to the nearest meter. But Felix was certainly aware of this, and
besides, 344.53 {'uj} must be somewhat over 114.84m if an {'uj'a'} is
"somewhat over 3m." And of course the disagreement between the poster and
the size chart is the least of the discrepancies concerning the BoP's size:
