Description

Dive logs needs have changed with the broad use of dive computers if you own your own. You can download more details from your dive including your dive profile and where you may have violated ascent or descent rules. 

I found that the dive logs you could purchase did not not include all the information I wanted to manually capture from the dive. There was also no place to record the dive number from the download. If you are like me, there are some dives you ignore, such as pool checks, but sometimes count with the download software. This means your real dive number and downloaded computer dive log number may be different.

The attached Draw template has 4 pages. This is to facilitate printing documented below. If you make changes, you will need to copy and set the margins for pages 2-4.

You have likely also noticed that the paper size for dive logs is non-standard as are the paper hole punches. I overcame this problem in the following ways:

  • I designed the layout using the actual size of a dive log page.
  • I created even and odd page layouts. They are the same except for the margin to allow for the hole punches on the left or right of the page. There are 2 adjacent even pages and 2 adjacent off paper pages.
  • The print instructions from Draw specify to print 2 pages per standard letter paper and double sided.

The printout is easily cleaved into separate pages then punched using an adjustable 3 hole paper punch.

The instructions I've provided are for printing to my Epson Photo 1400. It took a fair of trial and error to get both the Printer properties and Draw printing options aligned properly. You may need to play around with your own printer.
