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

The Boat Log & Record serious boaters keep track of everything they need to know about their boat and its operations. As useful for skippers of powerboats as those of sail, it is an all-in-one storehouse of information including year -to- year engine maintenance, GPS waypoints, spring commissioning and fall layup and storage checklists; insurance information, fuel log, and all-important emergency procedures including Man Overboard and how to send an SOS. Here boaters can keep an important log and record of all their boating activities. As useful on a day trip as it is on an extended cruise, the Boat Log & Record serves as one central source that becomes not only a legal record but a wonderful memento of a cruising year.
