Best way of logging it is probably in the IMCA logbook with the methodology of calculating days below.
Q&A: HOW WILL THE SEA TIME IN THE IMCA LOGBOOK BE COUNTED IF RECORDED IN HOURS?
The hours recorded in an individual’s logbook will be divided by 2 to get the number of DP days that the person has obtained in the last 5 years. This produces the formula below:
(Total number of hours for each embark / 2h) =< X
Where X cannot be more than the number of days of that embarkation.
The 2 hours comes from the definition of DP sea time for the offshore industry.
