Logging seatime

I''ve never kept a personal log. I have kept boat logs, so I have my seatime there. I''m thinking of working my way towards a 100ton Masters.
As far as logging seatime. I understand that 4hrs=one day. 8hrs in one calander day is still one day. I recently crewed on a delivery and did 24 hrs nonstop over two calander days = 2 days.
Am I correct that 2hrs today and 2hrs tomorrow = 1 day? 1/2hr each day over 8 days = 1 day?.
Basically, one calander day = one day. Add up "pieces of days" over multiple days to get full days, divide it by four to get number of days,, but that can''t exceed the number of calander days over that time period.
Is there a personal log available (I''ve checked BoatUS, WestMarine, Boaters World and have found only one type of personal log locally) to log seatime
Thanks for your time,

Relax. This is not all that complicated. Just be reasonable in the time you say you have logged over the time you have owned a boat. You must prove ownership. Also get people who own boats that you have crewed on to write you letters with reasonable sea time. It is all pretty much on the honor system. The examining officer will ask you a few questions that substanciate the time. You will want to state in your documentation the "average" time each sea day represents.
Concentrate on the Rules of the Road 90% required, and CFRs.
Good luck,
