Do your remember the movie L.A. story?

I check the weather often usually a non-factor. I was scheduled to sail last Wednesday with someone in a group I belong to. The boat owner canceled on Monday because of a 10% chance of rain. It ended up being "Sunny and Beautiful" as in the movie.

Check Alex on the radios. I will also add electronics panel familiarization.

Re: Checklist

Departure Check should including turning on boat electronics (and handheld ones, if any). I often forget about this until we are under way.

Re: Checklist

List for only you makes more sense. I start checking the weather three days before. Gives me a feeling for what may be blowing my way (depending on conditions) in plenty of time to come up with Plans B and C if I have to and time to alert any guests that things may not work out.

I would also add a check of rigging hardware. When we chartered I did a once over on the hardware I could see and had them replace a couple of things that looked bad.

I am an avid homebrewer. I have not put that on the checklist because I would never forget an adequate supply of beer. The list is more so I don't forget my foulies while focusing on trying to figure out how to get a keg on board.

Except for the crew briefing part this list is for me only to make sure I do not forget anything.
