FWIW, I just use an Excel spreadsheet, with a boatload of worksheets within: hull, engines, genset, plumbing, project notes, etc... Gives me room to include spare part numbers, wrench sizes, etc., and to link all that stuff to dates and engine hours.

This approach started well before smartphones and tablets came into existence.

I like to use other people’s stuff, especially when they are smarter than I am. I therefore downloaded the spreadsheet posted on MV Dirona’s website. It’s a great starting point that I have been tweaking to reflect the systems on our boat. A quick google search and you should be able find it.

I have tried many of the available apps and they have all gone by the wayside. Hard or impossible to customize and hard to make the entries I want. The winner so far is my Excel workbook with individual tabs for all of the suspect categories for everything I can imagine. Want a new category? Just add a tab. Able to handle basic and detailed info, timelines, everything. I keep it on the web so it can be accessed from anywhere. Google Docs, One Drive, others are available.

I also tried MV Dirona's spreadsheet before coming up with my own. Good spreadsheet but if I remember correctly I had trouble customizing it so it looked and handled things like I wanted. More of a style rather than substance issue though as his spreadsheet is used all over the place.
