An all-in-one guide, this log includes complete, clear listings of the crucial routines, equipment, safety gear, and other data that every skipper must have on hand.This unique log will help make every boat owner a reliable captain, a sound seafarer, and a good host. It combines the features of a boat's customized manual with a boat owner's personal diary and guest register, striking a balance between practicality, flexibility, and thoroughness that all boaters will value. The log provides ample space to record the complete daily record of a boat's cruises and activities, including entries for course steered, speed, distance traveled, weather, tides, barometric pressure, and personal observations. It features tricks of the pilot's trade, those easily forgotten mathematical shortcuts to coastal navigation.
