Read all about USC&GSS Carlile P. Patterson's general description, specifications and time line.

Notes:

1. Latitude/longitude, including for days in port, show representative decimal positions for each day, as calculated by the Old Weather project's analysis program. As such, they differ by varying amounts from the positions recorded, usually at noon, in the log pages. In addition, some latitudes/longitudes have been amended in edited logs for errors in the logs, for errors in identifying locations by the analysis program, or simply for greater accuracy. In all cases, refer to the log-page scans for the positions as originally recorded. Not all log pages contain this information and the ships' positions have therefore often been estimated.

2. Full account of any day is available by clicking on the link above that day. Any groups of links may refer to log book covers and introductory information; some may be blank.

Editor’s notes:

1. Many of Pattersons log pages do not contain locations. Where there are locations, they are usually descriptions of midnight locations. For most days noon locations have been found, where possible. In some cases, the ships position has been estimated from recorded distances and directions travelled. These are indicated thus: [Est].

2. The majority of each days log, including weather information, sail changes and narrative text, has been copied verbatim. Items such as soundings, barometer movements, anchor bearings, distances run by launches etc. and the names of the lieutenants whose signatures appear under the notes for each watch have not all been transcribed. Crew names are often difficult to decipher. Best attempts have been made.

3. Significant additions, comments and changes to log entries are marked in italic [thus].

4. Alternative spellings of names are generally given at the first instance.

5. Unclear or unverified entries are marked with [?].
