Example of what a weather page might look like when transcribing a line of data:
Page link



Thanks, Caro!



Some people find it easier to work with shorter boxes.
This is equally correct. Just don't forget to fill in the Hours field!




Thanks, Pommy Stuart!

Just had a look at Albatross 1900 and got stuck on the 7am line (same 4pm). What are the cloud letters.
From misc page letters are the same as fr cu.  ??

Would you say 8am is cu n,  if so do I enter cu n or the drop down Cum-Nim?

I will do a few more pages to see if there are any more problem letters.

I ran across the fr on Yorktown - Caro found Fractus:

(It would probably be best to transcribe that as fr cu.)

You can enter either cu n or the drop down Cum-Nim.

Take care with the cloud entries, the rest is reasonably easy with short Misc entries.
Enjoy.

Very clearly, life in Alaskan waters became more peaceful, and the civilized harbors with ships' stores more numerous, removing the need for defense and for hunting.  :)

I have never seen as many Alto cloud entries as on this ship.
Cannot remember Alto clouds in 4 years on the Concord.

Cross referencing with Patterson  :)

The Patterson gets around.

We met up with the Albatross today (July 28, 1914)
