No, and they won't brew your coffee either. However, they do help. Will you get into an aircraft where the pilot has shunned checklists?

is better to be able to back it up and repair it than to count on anything working all the time, because it WONT.
And checklists can help you to find equipment that is about to crap out.

charts do not keep one from running aground...not at all..what is the chart going to do --callyou to look at your equipment>??? rodlmao....
eyeballs and depth sounding equipment keep you from grounding, as long as you are aware of what your boat depth is....LOL....
Ah, yes, charts are useless. Eyeballs and depth sounding is where it's at.
