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)
Forward Hatch
Dog it
Through Hulls
Close the one for the head
Close the one for the galley
Power Panel
All switches OFF
Ice Box
Itís ok to leave unopened bottles & cans
Leave lid half off so condensation doesnít build up
Solar Panels
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
Equipment Covers
Tiller Mainsail
Deck locker
Cockpit locker
Ensure both gates are closed
Dock Lines
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.
