Do you think it is important for a new diver to use and keep up on his/her Dive Log Book?

[Choose #1] All dives should be logged whether your a newbie or a seasoned diver.

[Choose #1] I quit logging individual dives when I hit 1500 (12 years ago), but I still take notes about particularly cool places or things I’ve seen. It’s nice to be able to look back.

[Choose #1] Probably just reiterating what everone else has said, but yup log book is important to show your experience, as well it is great for looking back.

[Choose #1] many resort dive operators require dives within the last year get it stamped, or they will hustle you into a refresher course.

[Choose #1] Not just new divers but even experienced divers can make use of their log book. You use it to configure your gear for similar conditions and it provides a proof of experience that may be required for more advanced training and certifications.

[Choose #1] I use it to refer to when planning a trip to somewhere with similar conditions so that I know what I need to pack.

[Choose #1] 25 years + worth of log books disapeared during 1 move; wish I had them. Along with my original paper cert.

[Choose #1] I think everyone should keep up with it. It shows experience, understanding and more importantly, helps maintain your memory of dives.

[Choose #1] I created an online dive log on DiveBuddy. Log a dive then check out the Dive Log Summary page, you’ll like it.

[Choose #1] It’s a ready reference for what weights you wore with what wetsuite and/or tank size and makes interesting reading on a cold winter night.

[Choose #1] History of evey dive me and the wife make
dalehall - 5/08/2012 7:43 AM
[Choose #1] I love keeping a log book. Not only does it bring back memories when you read your entries, you can use it for reference if you haven’t worn a certain setup in quite awhile. It will tell you about your weight, how it was etc, from the last time.

[Choose #1] Especially the new diver, who may need to prove his number of dives to qualify for further dive education.
