Printed them all out and stored them in a looseleaf notebook. In a nod to the space constraints of the boat, the book uses half sheets, or 5x9 instead of 8-1/2 x 11.
I'm messy, too. I put the sensitive electronic device in a sealed plastic ziplock bag -- no hot soup splashes to ruin the device. Keeps it safe from the odd drips of water, too.
