Re: Pre sail checklist

I think it really depends a lot on what boat you are sailing. When I had a trailerable boat, it helped me at first to have a checklist of the mast raising steps (sucks to get the mast up and realize I forgot to run halyard). However, on a boat on a mooring I find the pre-launch checklist is more of a visual and mental review. As you get familiar with a boat you will be able to check, stem to stern, if everything is in place that you will need to sail.

Others may have a printed list.
