    I don't see the need, other than nostalgia, for a Traverse Board on a
    sailboat, unless you can't read and write. I find a pocket notebook
    much more compact and useful.

    As for a Chip Log a 4' to 8' length of 2x4 with enough small line
    attached to trail 50 ft. and to tie off  on the stern, plus a pair of
    knots spaced 100 ft. apart. Trail the line to the first knot, count
    the seconds to the second knot. Divide 60 by the seconds the result
    is speed in knots. Other variations can be found in Emergency
    Navigation, David Burch, 1986, International Marine Press. ISBN
