  1. How to track maintenance?

    Gear & Maintenance
    So for years I didn't adequately track the maintenance that I did on my boat, and then subsequently did an inadequate job keeping a list in a physical log book. When I went to sell my prior boat, I found that I had to try to figure it all out, and it wasn't easy. Now, with a new boat, I'm...
