Doesn't seem to be addressed (or at least not easily findable) in the FAQ thingy.Patterson logkeepers have started entering some readings as 6.- (not 6.0). (eg. see the last entries on http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ow3/final/USCS%20Patterson/Book%2015%20-%20April%201%20-%20June%2030,%201914/IMG_6553_0.jpg)I am entering these as written.Is that ok?
I think that is the best way to do it.
From what I can gather, the Patterson has gone help out the Steamer Yukon that seems to be stranded in Goodnews Bay Alaska (not a goodnews place for the Yukon, it seems). They had a number of officers were on board as passenger, they brought supplies and rations in for the ship, they had engineering staff helping in the Yukon's engine room, etc.Anyways, On June 11, they noted that they had sent in 16 tons of coal for the Yukon. Should I record this as -16 Tons in the refueling section (as this was not coal the Patterson burned), or just put it under events?http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ow3/final/USCS%20Patterson/Book%2015%20-%20April%201%20-%20June%2030,%201914/IMG_6545_0.jpgMy inclination is to put it in the refueling section
At 7:25 Launch #38 left ship with cutter & whaleboat in tow. Launch broke down & anchored - boats got adrift - sent motor dory out to pick them up. Dory launch broke down. Launch 38 returned to ship - sent Launch 38 after other boats. Launch 38 broke down soon after picking up the motor dory, but finally managed to get all boats to the Str Yukon.
