ANTIQUE SHIP LOGS

Here is our selection of antique ship logs. They are also sometimes called patent ship logs or taffrail logs. Mechanical ship logs were invented in the eighteenth century and they were used to determine a vessels speed through the water and the distance run. If a ships navigator knows the course steered and the distance the ship has travelled through the water, a dead reckoning position can then be plotted to determine the ships position.
