if you could provide an easily printable version of the USCG required items that would be greatly appreciated. it could be printed, laminated and stored onboard.
It's not really easily printable, but once you read it and determine what's required for your boat it would be pretty easy to make a laminated check sheet. Here are a few ways to get the federal requirements.
