I now have many of the deck logs for the USS Oriskany. I've aquired
these logs through the National Archives. Each file is in pdf format and
contains every daily log for a given month. Some of these logs are very large so
I've made the links the file size. You can either click on the link to begin
opening the pdf file or by right clicking, you can choose to "save target as" so
you can download the file directly to your computer.
Here is an example deck log for a single day. This is the deck log for Sunday, Nov 6, 1966.
With these deck logs, you can determine the ships location on any
given date by entering the lat. and long. from the logs in Google maps.
Here's an example where I plotted the route from North Island to Pearl Harbor at the end of May, 1966. Click on the
thumbnail image to see it full sized.
