Welcome to OW and the forum, Allenb120!
The Golden Rule for transcribing Date, Locations and Weather:Type exactly what you see on the page.
The Golden Rule for right column comments: If and only if that particular comment interests you, type exactly what you see.
Even if the log keeper has been sloppy, left blanks or made stupid mistakes. This is to make a historically-accurate transcription of an original document. There are also editing and review functions that later give us a chance to correct and improve the original document, so don't worry about it now.
Every time the ship is in port and frequently when they are inland on a river or sailing within sight of a coast, lat.long. readings are not taken. They are necessary only when out in the open sea. Frequently, especially when confined to a port or river, log keepers get sloppy and forget to record their position on the heading and noon boxes. But there will be days before and after that page that will inform the team of the ship's location. Please, when they leave the official location boxes blank, try to transcribe any landmarks they sight in the right column.
HMS Moorhen is a special gunboat. She is usually on the Pearl River above Hong Kong in China, and had the honor of escorting Dr. Sun Yat Sen out of China at one point in his travels. http://forum.oldweather.org/index.php?topic=2627.msg39061#msg39061
