# Teapot Riddle no.26

So I've noticed the Teapot riddles are rising in popularity and I figured I would give them a try; also, it didn't help that it was recommended by @user474343 for me to do so. Good luck to you all!

## The Rules

• I have one word which has several (2 or more) meanings.
• Each of the meanings is a teapot (first, second ...)
• You try to figure out the word with my Hints.

## The Puzzle

First:

My first teapot is a unit of measurement.

Second:

My second teapot is to understand.

• Yay, you made one! DVL1 $\color{darkorange}{\bigstar}$ :D – Mr Pie Sep 24 '18 at 22:44

FATHOM?

Because

Fathom is a nautical length measurement and it means to understand.

• As always sir, you are quick on the draw. I'll mark when I can. I knew this was too easy lol – Perpetual J Sep 24 '18 at 18:40
