Sounds good to me, I don't think the science team would turn down additional data. Curious, though, what time you're assigning to the additional entries?

I have been recording the numbers under the heading of Heal and Leeway as additional pressure readings. They have been occurring repeatedly for several log books at 8AM, 12 PM and 8 PM. Initially, there was a pressure under Heal and an attached temperature under Leeway and there was a fairly constant difference between the regular pressure and the additional one, the added one always lower than the regular one. But now we only see the additional pressure reading split between Heal and Leeway and the difference between it and the regular value is not as consistent as you can see in the following http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ow3/final/USS%20Yorktown/vol026of040/vol026of040_223_0.jpg

The additional numbers still look like pressure readings to me and I will continue to record them as such unless told otherwise.

I enter the same time for the regular and additional rows. I think this is standard procedure when there are extra weather observations in the same hour.

I would be interested in what Philip will do with the extra pressure readings, if anything.

I guess the first few lines of the first watch entries will be 'lost'.  :(

The dates are recoverable from the unrolled images.

This is frequent, Elizabeth. You have to keep skipping until you get to the page where the notes are rolled up. I keep track of the amount of coal remaining so that I don't transcribe the same weather page twice.

Skip?
Transcribe!
Don't want to (accidentally) cheat the project out of valuable data. :)

I don't mind depriving the project of grocery lists, Maikel.  But I hope for those who do that you still have the opportunity to transcribe them.  :)

I guess it's safe to assume it didn't say boom. ;)
