Re: Where do you keep your owner's manuals/info?
We have a lot of manuals. Several small plastic filing boxes are our first line of defense. One large box is difficult to find a place to store. One box has the more common systems and the other has manuals for little stuff we probably could get away with tossing. We also keep receipts for things we may need to remember where we purchased, for either spare parts or warranty.
Then I have one plastic accordion folder with the integrated rubber band around it. That contains the manual for the main, genset and dinghy motors, which I reference the most. If I am using another for a bit, I will keep it in there temporarily.
I have found a few manuals on the manufacturers websites and they are easy to download to iBooks on my iPad. However, I agree with the comment that they are not as ergonomically useful as a printed manual, IMO.
I nice compromise is being able to print the few pages I need and then I can get them as greasy or grimy as I like and toss them when done. But, I don't have a printer aboard.
