I've just bought a 2004, 28' Doral Prestancia. (I'm moving up in the world from a 25 foot Cobia bowrider...)
Right now, I'm going through tons of manuals, troubleshooting guides for the myriad systems.
Has anyone developed a 'handy-dandy' START UP CHECKLIST, which one can follow, to ensure everything has been followed, step by step, when preparing for departure, after a week's hard work back home?
Sure, I know about the 4-5 minutes of 'blower' usage regarding fumes and such, but what about the various switches, 'inlets being opened', and the like; for the engine, "gennie," hot water system, air cond, etc.?
It sure would make a handy reference tool (on a clipboard), for the first season or two...especially if my 'first mate' wishes to learn it as well.
Can anyone assist please?
