Thanks for you input.
Sounds like you need something you can throw in a seabag? Get yourself a nice ruled Moleskein, and figure out how much detail you want to record
. You don't need a whole lot, but it will be handy to note the type of boat and its displacement
in tons, as well as the general conditions. If you are crewing
for others, have the skipper
sign your log at the end of the trip. If you're collecting sea time for a USCG license, what they're looking for is the data, not the book itself.
Here's an example of how an entry might look:
4/30/12 R/V Kashi. Twin screws, 120 tons. Research
assistant. Depart Monterey 0530. Marine
layer + patchy fog
. NW wind
15 knots. Swell W 8' every 15 seconds. Conducted midwater trawls Carmel Canyon. Returned Monterey 1530.
