A very useful Ship's Log form, 8 1/2" x 11" in landscape mode. You may want to print out several of these and fill them in whenever you get on the water. They are most handy for record keeping like dates, weather, harbors, anchorages, marinas, engine hours, adventures, and whatever else you'd like to record. Click to open: Ship's Log.
A list of provisions for 4-5 people for a week long journey. Includes most of what would be required for a bare boat charter. This is in .jpg format.
