Why Use a Boat Log?
With electronic chart plotters so common nowadays may people wonder why we need to keep a boat log at all. Although keeping a logbook is not legally required for pleasure boats in North America, the primary reason is for safety and back-up. Should anything happen, it can serve to provide information for outside assistance, or to switch to manual navigation if the boat’s electronics fail.
A Trip Planning section (like the one in our personalized boat log) is also a good safety feature.
Here's a story to illustrate this; on a blustery day in the Penobscot Bay area we had just sailed south past Isleboro Island when we suddenly got hit by 30 knot gusts as we rounded the southern tip of the island. Our GPS was on the blink and I was up reefing the main (yes – we should have done this sooner!) when the helmsman called out which side of the green buoys should we pass? “Leave them on your left” I replied, which was contrary to convention since we were technically headed out to sea.
Being an old salt he naturally disagreed. So here we were, heeled over to the max, the main half way reefed and closing in fast on the buoys. After a frantic dash below to verify the chart we were able to get by without hitting anything. After that I always wrote down details of our intended course in the boat log before leaving.
