New mariner's diary devised by master Review by NautilusTelegraphJan17
Appeared in the Nautilus Telegraph, January 2017:

A Nautilus member has produced a new ‘mariner’s diary’ – which has been published by the Scottish firm Witherby Seamanship.

Captain Nick Nash, a master with Princess Cruises, said he embarked on the project in an attempt to fill the gap in the market and to provide a useful aid for seafarers.

“I’ve always felt that keeping a diary is a good thing and it is useful not just for the person who keeps it, but also for students of history,” he says. “It’s always good to go back and read your manoeuvring notes, and to see that the forecast was and what the wind was.”

“I designed it with captains and other seafarers in mind and have tried to make it as practical as possible,” Capt Nash adds.

“There are daily pages which you can use as a normal diary, but also space for personal information and certificate details, vaccination records and sealog pages.”

The 320-page diary also includes sections for recording meetings and phone calls, as well as UK Met Office information, country data and material on celestial navigation.

“I know we are in the electronic era, but I think there is still a place for paper and I hope the diary will be appreciated by seafarers,” Capt Nash says. (Posted on 11/01/2017)
