Log Book

On passing my PB2 a couple of years ago, I was given the RYA Logbook, I have filled in the book, with my boat trips, hours and recorded the miles.

Does anyone else fill this in ?

Nope, the closest I have is from my diving trips, depth, time of slack, notes on the wreck etc.

I was taught on my day skipper to always keep a log book, not 100% sure but I think we may have even bought one, never used it though.

A couple of reasons to keep it up, obviously dependeing on what you want from boating.
1. If looking to Charter.
2. If looking to move forward to other (more advanced courses.. Commercial) a resume' of experience is usefull.

No not looking to charter, and certainly not looking to go commercial.

I keep a log, but as a spreadsheet recording dates, start / end times, engine hours, voyage, weather, and fuel etc - useful for calculating servicing, fuel consumption etc. I just note the details & type it in later - provides useful record of what the boat's done over time.

I keep a notebook up to date each time I go out. Date, location, weather, distance, fuel used, find it quite interesting to look back on.
