            I like your idea.  In fact I have made a SR 229. I plan to make
    my own log using a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 note book binder.  I could sending a
    copy of my form to the list, but it is in 6.1 Wordperfect format.  It is
    almost identical to the one you presented only smaller. It make for 5 1/2
    x 8 1/5 paper.  I just wanted a smaller one to take with me on cruises.
            Include in the note book I am adding lots of formula I have used
    in working problem from this nav. list.
            This list is a great help to me.  It is keeping me in navigation
    every day.  With 4 to 5 sextant reading every day.  My house is beginning
    to stay put.  Dosen't move around much anymore.  I am ashamed to admit
    how little I had use the sexant until this list.
