Boat inventory

Every little thing on your boat adds up. The items that make your boat safe and comfortable may not seem very costly when you buy them individually. But if you ever need to replace them after something unexpected happens, you will quickly discover how much they add up.

Use the list of items below to create a boat inventory. Write the price and date of purchase next to each item you own. Keep this list in a safe place on dry land so you can refer to it if the need arises.
