The following are documents we use on the boat.  They are here for online access and likely not much interest to anyone else.

Check Lists:  Both being avid list makers, we have created a series of checklists.  Such as what to do when we arrive/leave the boat, before getting underway, etc.  They all reside in one Word document which uses the forms function to create a “clickable” checklist we use on an iPad (I believe it requires MS Word to function).  As with most checklists, this is an ongoing work-in-progress.  Our Checklists.

Engine Room Temperature Log:  I use an Excel file to record engine room temperatures.  One worksheet per day/leg is used, then archived.  There is a link to this file from within the checklist document.  Our Engine Room Temperature Log.

Waste Management Plan:  By Cost Guard regulations (Title 33 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 151.57), any boat over 40 feet in length must have a written Waste Management Plan.  Our WMP.

Note: In addition, CFR 151.59 requires that all vessels 26 feet or greater in length have a “MARPOL Annex V placard” prominently displayed for the crew and passengers regardless of whether your boat operates on inland waters or the ocean.  Ours in proudly displayed on the trash can on the sundeck!  Placard may be obtained directly from the Coast Guard or Power Squadron.
