I must confess to making another mistake: I transcribed the locations for August 2nd - 11th 1916 as Karichak Bay, but it turns out the correct name is Kvichak Bay!

Easily fixed in My Pages - if that is your biggest problem here, you are wonderful.  :)

I just finished December 1917, and have been sent forward a year to January 1919.
The log book format looks pretty much the same as before (if rather rough around the edges), but one odd thing is that when in port, 24 WR are recorded but 18 of those consist only of the pressure reading:

Ah well. Least it's not the full 24 WR / day.

Apparently if they aren't going anywhere, they don't care about wind and temp.  Philip has said that is there is only one reading made, he gets the most use out of the barometer.

One does shoot forward pretty fast when 75% of the WR one does only contain one or two values.

Whew, what a day ... I just did all of July, August and September 1919 in one night. Now it's 1.30 am and I'm getting exhausted without the transcribing to distract me from my own fatigue.

Better get some sleep. Good night.

Love the picture, Hanibal94!

I will have to try to visualize that when I can't sleep.

Love the sleeping cat, Janet!

Actually, I'm not an admiral - I only have three captaincies (Pioneer and both Unalgas).
There are others with more:

- Silvia has four (Bear, Rush, Thetis, Vicksburg)
- leelaht has four (Albatross 1884, Jamestown 1866, Jamestown 1886 and Rodgers) and will seize a fifth (Perry) soon
- Craig has five (Corwin, Jamestown 1844, Jamestown  1879, Jeanette, Yukon)

So if anyone's an admiral of the fleet here, it's Craig.

I think we can all agree that Silvia is the admiral.  In any case, she admirable.  ;D
