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

I store my manuals in 2 large binders, either held in plastic sleeves or 3-hole-punched.
I seperated the manuals between equipment that's attached to the boat, and that which isn't. That division seems arbitrary but it equalizes the volume each binder has to hold and I know right away which one to look in. The binders, boat book & maintanance log, engine manuals all go into a waterproof plastic file box like HyLyte's.
I seem to use the manuals a lot, so I keep the file box on the cabin sole or on a settee, or on the galley counter, or the nav desk--or anywhere I can find it easily by tripping over it.
But it's important to have digital copies, too, so you can print any that get soaked.
