      I'm a retired-soldier not a sailor.
      This may be a definition of terms.
      Was the entry recorded as aannnnnn or as nn*nn'nn"?
      1. My understanding is that geographic coordinates refers to location
      identification on land were location is represented by coordinate grid
      system usually in the format aa-nnnnnn.
      2. At sea, due to the vast distances, Latitude and Longitude is usually
      used to express distance in degrees, minutes and seconds in the format
      nn*nn'nn"-nn*nn'nn".
      I would guess that the second option was actually recorded. If not, I
      apologize for doubting what you found.

      Yesterday it was the first time I found a death record of a man , who was
      traveling from Baltimore to Bremen and died on ship. The place of death were
      the geographic coordinates.
