the hard bound Record book from Staples or Office Depot is excellent for your boat's log keeping. Then have one for Maintenance or sectionalized the record book for the Maintenance. But have one or several for daily observations by your guests. (They may want to take it home with them for memory keeping along with photos).
For the Official log:
Starts at 0001 (midnight) Who is on watch, position at that time, course, speed and weather. During the watch record course & speed changes, weather changes. At end of watch distance traveled and any other data that could be pertinent to your vessel. Errors are single lined out and initialed, no obileration, white out or tear out of pages. Each End of watch entry signed by off going senior watch stander.
You could use the left-hand pages for daily maintenance if you care to. I.E. Engine fluid checks, batteries check, fuel on board and so on. Along with Engine hours and generator hours from last oil & filter change.
