Re: Where do you keep your owner's manuals/info?

If you can close your eyes and get past the purchase price of a NeatScan or Fujitsu ScanSnap, they really chew through a lot of pages in short order, scanning both sides at once and generating a searchable PDF file. There are some differences in how they work and compatibilities, but the only thing they lack is a papershredder attachment for dead filing.

I prefer paper manuals, but having a scanned copy as backup, reference, second location, can be priceless. The downside on a boat is that if you're trying to fix something that ate all your power...Yeah, paper works better when the batteries are down.
