"One of the most complete cruise preparation guides I've seen. An inexpensive way to get yourself organized."  —Boating magazine on previous edition

As useful for skippers of powerboats as those of sail, the Boat Log & Record is a complete resource to keep track of everything boat owners need to know about their boats and their maintenance. In its large 184 pages, it is actually many books in one (you can choose and use your own categories): A pleasure boat log, including GPS waypoints, time, speed, distance, and nav notes; boat expenses, insurance information, and marine suppliers; planning for day trips and short cruises; boat emergency instructions including sending an SOS. As useful on a day trip as it is on an extended cruise, the Boat Log & Record serves as a central go-to informational resource that becomes not only a legal record but a wonderful memento of many golden boating years. It is the practical, all-in-one book every skipper needs onboard.
