Your salinity is 1.025 based on your temps. You probably have a high quality floating gauge hydro (based on the 60 deg cal temp) which is as accurate as anything including refractometer (which is why we use them in labs) as compared to the more common plastic cavity bulb hydrometers which are only good for throwing at squirrels and testing radiator fluids.
Use this for more accurate conversions
