Re: iPad Ships Log Book

I think it is splitting hairs but this is a quote from Solas Chapter V Annex 21, Recording of Navigational Events.

"2.) Method of recording

SOLAS regulation V/28 requires that, if the records of navigational activities are not maintained in the ship's log-book, they should be maintained in another form approved by the Administration. Methods of recording should be permanent and may be handwritten, electronical or mechanical."

Re: iPad Ships Log Book

I tried a different but similar product and although good the big stop for me is it only allowed capture of Engine hours on one engine. On our catamaran we have 2 but could also have a genset making 3

Re: iPad Ships Log Book

And if it gets ruined by water, how do you intend to prove your course when questioned? Paper is far better. $2 school notepad is slightly cheaper too. :P
