    When I first saw a traverse board in a museum, I thought it would be a handy
    thing to have in the cockpit in a thunderstorm when too much is going on to go
    below to write and it is too wet to do any navigation with pencil and paper in
    the cockpit.  I have never tried it thought.  I just write on the fiberglass
    with a wooden pencil and scrub it off afterwards.  It adds a different slant
    to the words "deck log".    I keep a list of course changes and log readings.
    Later, I can plot it.  I also write on the boat when racing.  I find it easier
    than trying to remember times at marks and headings on each tack.
