RE: Cruising notes

Here is an entire book on "logging" which covers much more than just basic trip notes and maintenance.*

Click on the orange button for excerpts from the book, including example log pages.*

RE: Cruising notes

My wife use to make wood engraved cruising log that she sold at boating events and special hand made quilts and bedding.* She made all of our curtain, quilts, bedding and most of our upholstery.* **However, I keep on the computer a running list since we bought the Eagle as to improvements/remodel/maintenance/repairs with the cost which is good to refer back to.* We dont keep a cruising log.* Most people that due keep a cruising log is so they can deduct for tax returns as a log is required.* * *****

Cruising notes

I knew that was coming.*

The first time I had ever see/heard the term Dock Queen was on Passagemake about 10+ years ago in reference to the Eagle and me.*I think FF first use the term.**Over the years we have proable*averaged leaving*the dock as often as most boaters.******

When we retire we will probable start writing the Eagle off for tax purposes so a log and records will be required.* Many of the larger boat are written off for tax purposes.* How do you think they can afford them?* *
