85 nautical miles is about one-and-four-fifths times as long as The Panama Canal.
In other words, the length of The Panama Canal is 0.560 times that amount.

Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans across the Isthmus of Panama, the Canal measures 48 nautical miles in length. Ships passing through the Canal are raised (and then lowered) 0.014 nautical miles above sea level through the lock-and-dam system.
