Heading to the ramp? We have a pre departure checklist for each boat as some are different sail rigs and some are motor. Some of the most important prep is before leaving the driveway during Pre Departure, to avoid getting to the ramp and finding out the boomkin was left on the varnish bench (might have happened) or the Skipper doesn't have coffee (never happened). Here is an example of the van and boat load out for a day sail on our 1980 Drascombe Lugger ONKAHYE.
First we need the boat ONKAHYE, then the priority items:
Chains, Plug, Latch, Lock, Jack stowed
Check lug nuts
Tow vehicle Pack Up:
Yellow tool box:
First Aid kit
Running lights + batteries
Life jackets 1 per
Chow crackers, sandwiches, chips
Aladdin water jug and foam cups
Deck chairs for the Ramp Supervisor/PIO and usual visitors
Lugger pack up:
(Consider a test run of the motor at the house the day before)
We'll cover some trailering items in another post, and rigging and launch at the ramp.
Have fun and take your time!
