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

There are different tpyes of logs, mainainece log, weather log, supply log which includes food consumption and prices of supplies, details of your travels, budget etc and a brief cosise easy to interprut list of where you travel for the porpose of any coast guard, customs etc...

maintainence log should be considered essential
weather,budget and supply logs helpful
details of travels....might not seem important now, but you might regret no doing it,
the last might save your butt just by documenting somthing as simple as your last port of call

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

Yes, a couple different ones. I keep a "sailing log" to record 30 minute positions and such, a seperate maintenance log, and a cruising log for special occasions or passengers. A lot I know, but ex-Navy and maybe a little OCD.

One thing I need to make up is an inventory....but suff is to spread around...food inventory is essential on long cruises.
