Sorry about the duplicates. I expect we'll see their number drop off from our A2 station now with more experience gained. Please remember though that this series was shot by a student volunteer early on and not by a professional as was the case with UK logs. We don't want to waste your time either so if it isn't readily manageable let me know.  :)

You apparently haven't read some of our comments on some of the RN log scans ::)

We are managing.  It is more a minor irritant, the kind of thing that happens in the learning curve.  And made some additional transcriptions for the weather page - the comment page is what alerts us, it triggers memories and Foxfire drop-downs.  The RN 'professionals' never did figure out how to put single page inserts so they wouldn't be cut in half - equally irritating, and it never went away.

The only thing I'd want the scanners to go back for was the multi-page insert that was never fully opened and scanned.  My curiosity bump is itching again. :)

Oh it's just annoying when you're trying to save the planet, Kevin. I have so little time that I hate wasting it - it's sometimes just good to get it off your chest rather than steam gently with it for too long...I know it'll get better - I think you've already mentioned the situation at your end and I'm sympathetic to that. Can't imagine what my first entries were like!  ::) ;D

Kevin, complaining to sympathetic company about minor shared irritations is necessary to the health of the soul.  True for anyone doing anything, I think.  If we have major problems, you'll get direct questions from us. 8)

Topic: half hour reading - Patterson

the log keeper inserted a 25th wind reading apparently in connection to a course change at about 9:30am, with a wind change at 10am.  Apparently in connection to a course change, although I don't know if the course change was planned or in response to the wind change.

I entered it even though it was only a ditto mark with no other information.  Will this mess up the analysts so I should delete it?  Or should I keep it?

Please put it in - it will complicate the analysis but I'm sure we'll cope.

Philip answered just before Christmas, the holidays blurred all our memories. :) 
Your extra wind reading would be at 5:30am.

Very bizarrely the crew list of 1848/9 from a ship called the Ewing are contained in the log for Patterson. Haven't transcribed the main page behind this inserted multi-page list - no doubt the list's appearance is explained there.
The list includes many deserters, but a chap called John Black mentioned on this page:
 
http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ow3/final/USCS%20Patterson/Book%201/IMG_4826_1.jpg

is noted as HUNG FOR MUTINY.  :o :o :o

Gives me the shivers....

Whoa!!! Next page of the list, Peter Black is also hung for mutiny.
