The Seafarer

This poem speaks to my soul and spirit. It is as meaningful and relevant today as it was when written over 1,000 years ago.

Deck Logs - 2021

The deck log format presented here is a compendium of several different logs I have had an opportunity to inspect and use over the years. If you find them useful, please make a donation to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
The documents are intended for double sided, i.e., duplex, printing. They are landscape format and designed to be bound along the left edge. If bound with a spiral or cerlox binding, the log will lay flat on the chart table.
I've decided to offer personalisation of the log as a service. I will place your Vessel's Name on the first page of each log and in the headers of each pair of daily pages. The personalised logs will be e-Mailed to you as a set of pdf files in return for proof of a modest donation to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

Please use my e-Mail contact to submit personalisation requests, comments, and suggestions.

The files below are Adobe Acrobat portable document format (pdf) files. The Acrobat Reader can be downloaded free of charge from the Adobe website.

For those of you that don't sail constantly or frequently enough to warrant dedicating a log book per month, I have prepared an undated version of the deck log with sufficient space on each page to write a date. It can be found here. Thanks to Jim aboard SV Short Circuit for the suggestion to include it.

Hinterhoeller Drawings

Venture Sail has obtained an assortment of component drawings for vessels constructed by Hinterhoeller Yachts Ltd. These include drawings and specifications for custom castings, cradles, tanks, and other such items.

A portion of the collection has been scanned and is available here.

If you find these of value, please make a suitable donation to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).
