A new editable PDF for tablets, iPads and desktops promises to make keeping a maintenance logbook much easier and more convenient. The Maintenance eLogbook loads on most devices and has clickable checklists, 40+ drawings  to help with inspections, summary pages (for example to keep all oil changes in a single list), all common measurements and a live calculator for conversions.  The 196-page eLogbook costs $7.99 and is created and published by Marine Diesel Basics.  Download a free 28-page sample at:


The eLogbook uses “fillable forms” and needs a PDF app with this function, such as the free Xodo PDF Reader.
