Maintenance check list

I recently read a post on bottom paint and how long it lasts, etc. After getting an oil change in may car and writing it down in my log, it raised a question....

Aside from the maintenance manual for the engine (you can even include that here) does anyone have a comprehensive list for regularly scheduled maintenance on a sailboat?

I understand that each boat is different, but in generalities it would help give an idea to new/potential boat owners what to expect.

Maybe weekly/monthly/yearly entries. Just like an automobile has.

I have a Yanmar engine maintenance log with service intervals in a binder on the boat, I also have a checklist in the binder that is completed before each outing that covers everything from engine condition, fluid levels, battery check, electrical, plumbing and thru-hulls, rigging, safety gear etc etc. The skippers log also goes into the binder at the end of every trip.

In addition to the logbook I have a notebook that lives in my seabag to remind me of items that need to be done so I don't forget between trips to the boat. It's very frustrating to have to postpone a departure until after WM opens because you forgot that a certain block or piece of rigging had broken on a previous trip, although I also keep a healthy spares list as well.

This sounds like a lot of work but in reality I am constantly keeping a mental checklist from the moment I approach the boat and can complete the checklists from memory in just a minute or two while I'm waiting for the engine to warm up.

The Gemini Catamaran Owner's group has such a list IIRC. If you join the group, you can probably download it from the forums.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
