Lincoln
He kept two logs because he wanted to raise the morale of his crew. He kept one log that said the actual time that his ships had been sailing and the other log, that he left for his crew to find, had a shorter amount of time so the crew wouldn't be mad about the amount of time they had sent sailing.
