Is that still on the boat?

 As we are getting ready to pack up for a long weekend, I thought I would share our check list. (Actually I am procrastinating on working on the cushions).   We print this off if it has been awhile since we were last on the boat.  It is amazing how things travel on and off the boat without our remembering it.  We leave the list out on the kitchen counter and as we load something on or notice it is already on, we check it off the list.  We use the empty space on the right to add any notes to ourselves about this particular trip.  For instance, if we need to confirm reservations at a marina, we will jot ourselves a reminder.  

This system definitely isn't anything fancy or scientific, but it has saved us on several occasions.  No one wants to arrive at the ramp and then remember the rudder is in the garage.  Feel free to modify for your needs.

 Fair winds to you all over the 4th!
