Re: Do you sailor's keep a log book?

I've tried keeping detailed logs with wind speed and direction, wave heights, etc.
In the end I always abandon it because it's just too much work. A maintenance log, though, is a must. With an old boat and old motor, you're always working on it and it's easy to forget just how long it's been since you replaced this or that.
I'll probably try again this season, but I think I'll limit it to distance or time sailed. If I keep it very simple I may be able to stay with it.
