The ship’s logbook has been a maritime tradition since ancient times. It is the place to document the voyages and movement of the vessel and events that take place on board related to safe navigation and the well being of the crew and cargo. Required log entries (not related to navigation) are specified for some vessels in 46 USC 11301. This logbook is intended as a navigation log, with spare pages in the back for other entries.
The column labels reflect typical entries for a sailing vessel, but these can be renamed in the spaces below each label. The labels suggested are:
Rows are numbered for cross reference or to help coordinate logbook entries with closest hour for hourly entries, or use the rows any way that is convenient. Frequency of entry depends on the circumstances.
A place to list voyages is on Page 1, along with a place to number this Logbook within a sequence. Each book should cover at least 40 days of 24-hour sailing with hourly entries, or longer with less frequent entries.
Data for the back of the book might include list of crew for each voyage, confirmation of safety checks, summary of voyage, and so on.
The logbook pages are bound and numbered as preferred by the USCG and admiralty courts, worldwide.
