Krazy Kea Puzzle

A ship is tied to the quay at low tide. Down its side is a ladder, with each rung of the ladder 300 cm apart, with ten rungs between the deck and the water. Every half an hour the tide rises 300 cm. How many rungs of the ladder will the tide have covered after three hours?

Mixed up translations: English: "Out of sight, out of mind" becomes, in Russian: "Invisible lunatic."

English: "Come alive with Pepsi" becomes, in Chinese: "Pepsi brings your relatives back from the dead."

Seen in a Belgian luggage department: "Hand you baggage to us. We will send it in all directions."

Notice in a Spanish Hotel: "It is forbidden to steal hotel towels please. If you are not a person to do such then please not to read this notice."

Answer: The water will be on higher up the padder after three hours because the ship goes up with the tide.
