    Logbook basics
    saynomore, Thu Sep 03 2009, 05:40PM

    logbooks differ from one printer to another but essential entries are the same.

    Name of vessel
    official number (registration or license)
    prot of registry
    tonnage
    radio call sign
    (all these entries, entered once at the beginning of the log book)

    Names of Captain and crewmembers at the start of the voyages (and relevant changes)
    Remember the Captain must sign the log book at the end of each voyage, hoewever short.

    Daily entries include:
    point of departure and destination
    date
    times and ships positions
    weather
    general comments
    course, speed
    sail changes/engine hours
    fuel, oil, gas. consumption and tank change over

    other:
    length of anchor rode and how marked ( 2 whites with 1 red in center = 10 fathoms)
    radar heading error marker
    correction for actual depth sounder (height of transducer from keel)
    vessels length overall, fraft, and spar height
    anything else you can think of that will make your cruise safe and enjoyable like bearing deviation card.
