Re: What tools do you bring in your sailboats?

I stow:
70 pc socket set in it's formed plastic hard case- includes metric and fractional, 1/4", 3/8", 1/2 drive, spanners, hex keys, screwdriver bits.
soft "mechanical" tool bag- contains various pliers, 3 different sizes of vice grips, an assortment of slot head, phillips head, robertson head screwdrivers, torque wrench (in case), feeler gauges, dead blow mallet, ball peen hammer, 5 lb. short handle sledge, small and medium pry bars, oil filter wrench, magnetic and claw 24" retrievers, another set of allen keys, wrist lanyards for all tools.
small hard case "electrical" tool kit- multi meter, wire cutter, wire stripper/crimper, electrical tape, heat shrink, butane torch, zipties, wire, terminals, connectors, miscellaneous stuff.
Power tool bag- B&D Matrix drill and accessory heads, and charger, tool roll containing jigsaw bits and drill bits.
Woodworking bag- a variety of chisels, from 1/4" - 1/5" in a tool roll, counter sink bits, forstner bits, plug cutters, flush cut saw, folding pull saw, small planes, level, square bevel gauge, wooden mallets, small hammers

It all stows in the locker under the quarter berth- maybe adds 30 lbs to boat load.
It's 5 o'clock somewhere:
