The e125 and e127 Raymarine units have four trip logs. I use Trip 1 for each day. Trip 2 for planned trips of multiple days ( its currently tracking total miles for the Great Loop). Trip 3 for mile traveled after last refueling and Trip 4 for a total running miles since the instrumentation was installed.

There doesn't appear to be any way to give it an offset to account for previous miles, so I'll have to tally them up manually and mentally add them.

Thanks everyone for inspiring me to look a little harder in front of my nose....

Just a thought, throw it in the car or truck for a few weeks when you're on land. The miles seem to add up faster at 60 than at 8.

That's a great idea. Good out-of-the-boat thinking :-)

Now I just need to figure out how many miles to add....... It's probably around 2000, but I need to hunt through all my west coast tracks.

I run Sea Clear on my net book. It logs distance travelled in a log file. It is freeware, so all you need to do is download it and plug a GPS puck into you computer.

RTF and FF beat me to it. You don't need no stinkin electronics. You need a taff rail log. Unfortunately I don't think anyone makes them anymore. I sold a few of them back in the seventies. Sold a whole bunch of the replacement spinners. Sharks would eat them!

Yep, ours display in the MFD-12/NN3D "data boxes" and there's both a Trip Log and an Odometer. If the Trip Log hasn't ever been reset, it will display the same value as the Odometer.

Our older DGPS I mentioned above is a GP-36, too.
