What is deck log book on ships and entries made in it ?

  • Draught survey calculations:

The ship’s calculations of the quantity of cargo by draught survey should be retained for inspection at a later date, if required.

  • Cargo book:

It has become standard practice on all types of ships to include a note of cargo loaded or discharged on the ship’s ports of call list or  voyage memo, but more information can be valuable.

  • Visits by various Officials and Authorities.
  • A Statement of Facts (SOF)  is normally produced by the ship’s agent to cover the time spent in a loading or discharge port. The Shipmaster should satisfy himself before signing the statement that the information it contains is accurate, since it will be used to calculate the value of any demurrage or despatch payments or to settle any disputes which may arise regarding the voyage.
  • Time of commencement & ceasing of cargo work.
  • Any Interruption or stoppages during cargo work & their reason.
