Did you roll your own character sheets in a previous life?I am going to create my own logbook.
I've looked at a variety of products online. All seem to have some features I like, but none seem to have all.
Features I 'THINK' I am interested in:
- Water Resistant- I am going to print it out on Rite in the Rain Paper
- 1-Page/dive - Will take the 8.5"x11 and fold it so the booklet is 8.5"x5.5"
- Eliminate Blank Dive Profile 'Graph' - For 'Shop Lead' dives I am never really able to use this to 'plan' a dive as I just follow the leader then try to record the info from my computer afterwards.
Although I have removed the graph, I have test fields for some of the info.
For those dives I plan and do on my own. I can draw the graph in the comments section.
- Reference Pages - I added a few pages to hold some reference info
a) A few infrequently used features of my Dive Computer
b) NITROX related tables (32% & 36%) - MOD, EOD, Total O2 exposure, ppO2
c) Brief Medical History - Vaccinations/dates, Allergies, Medical Conditions
d) Emergency Info - Erasable area for local numbers, printed info for MY contact info
I've attached a sample of the log page.
I'd like your comments (good or bad or ugly).

here's all you need , Yours is fine if you don't dive that much. I would need a separate filing cabinet for my 9000 dives since 1962. Each dive is one line. Date, Place, Depth, ,Type and Condition, Bottom Time and remarks. Each line on every book is full except the open book. I say Keep it Simple. I often when it's miserable conditions go back through the books and imagine the incidents. 57 years of it. View attachment 406146
I haven't read most posts and apologize if any of this was mentioned (since everyone probably has their own preferences on data anyway). It's also what you're used to as well--I use the standard "Trident" leafs.
I would add:
--a running count on bottom time ei. previous bottom time total plus this today=________ (think that was mentioned before). Personally, I keep only "dive" time as opposed to "official" bottom time, since my usual dives begin and end right at the shore. But I guess you could keep both.
--add "Average Depth". Mine is always considerably shallower than my Max Depth.
I would delete:....
Sounds like you've got all my stuff covered. I was just adding those comments based on the example you included in your OP. I don't know what SOURCE or PDF is, but am not a computer guy.
