After five in-depth inspection articles, we here's the rig checklist, which is ready for download (below), to pull it all together.
We tried several options, but an Excel spreadsheet provides the most flexibility, allowing you to modify the list to fit your own needs. For example, columns can be easily added for stuff like notes and the date the check was last performed.
Of course, Excel is anything but inexpensive, but the good news is that you can also upload the checklist to Google Sheets, which is free. There are also other free alternatives.
We are also providing it as a PDF for those of you who just don't want to mess around with spreadsheets—just print the PDF and use one of those cool high-tech graphite and cellulose-based mark-up devices.
A big thank you to those members who filled in blanks in my experience. I have given credit and linked the list item to their comment.
We will update the list and parent articles with the additions and improvements that arise as you use it in the real world.
Please make suggestions for improvement's or adding items on the parent article linked to that item.
