Re: Anyone use a checklist
I haven't sailed my new boat yet (hangs head in shame), but I already have my first checklist:
(the SailNet forum ate my formatting)
Before Leaving (7/10/12)
Close the one for the head
Close the one for the galley
All switches OFF
Itís ok to leave unopened bottles & cans
Leave lid half off so condensation doesnít build up
Connect leads to House battery
Set up panels on cockpit seats
Leave controller inside deck locker
Remove the staff
Wrap flag around it
Stow it below
Retract & tilt
Ensure both gates are closed
2 fenders (check height)
Bow line Stern line
2 Spring lines
I just need to scan the items in bold.
I'll create lists for Day Sail, Overnight, etc. and also one for Docking so I'm not looking for my boat hook when I should be using it.

Tide goes in, tide goes out. Never a miscommunication. You canít explain that.
