We've always kept a log, not a blow-by-blow or tack-by-tack or hourly fix type of log appropriate for passage making, but more of a journal/diary type of record, in addition to maintenance and upgrade information. We track conditions, destinations, guests, number of days, overnights, and laydays. Recently we've adapted an expandable photo-album style of log with sleeves to add photos to flesh out the written word. For photos we tend to make collages of various pics we've taken during the trip(s)
