The 40 day list

I’ve made numerous mentions in recent posts to “the list”. It’s the checklist that lives on my Palm Centro,. It was compiled as we headed toward the Chesapeake, and it drove the activities surrounding our maintenance haulout and stopover for the 40 days we were in maintenance mode. That the list comprises nearly the same number of entries as days spent in maintenance mode is  pure coincidence. My father lives on with his lists, although his were always on paper in a spiral notebook! I thought it might be interesting or amusing to post the list. It’s in a sort of order, the objective was to have an asterisk at each entry, signifying completion! We’re back in cruising mode now, and a new list takes root- it’s just not quite as extensive!
