7.40 seconds is about one-seven-hundred-fifty-thousandth as long as The Voyage of the Mayflower
In other words, the length of The Voyage of the Mayflower is 770,000 times that amount.
(1620)
Having left Southampton, England on September 16th (new style), 1620, the Mayflower dropped anchor near Cape Cod, Massachusetts 5,700,000 seconds later on November 21st (new style), 1620. The voyagers had planned to travel in a convoy of two ships, but the smaller Speedwell was found to be leaking (evidently as a result of sabotage) and all passengers had to be moved to the Mayflower instead.
