Re: What tools do you bring in your sailboats?
We carry enough tools to do general maintenance of all sorts.. including non-major engine repairs like FWC pump change, or H/E removal for cleaning/checking if necessary. Combo wrench set, serious socket set (both metric and imperial) battery drill, all manner of pliers and other necessaries.. A good multimeter, and a wide selection of spares, leftovers, seizing wire, tapes of all sorts, wire/cable cutters and several lengths of dyneema for temporary (or permanent ) lashings.
Probably don't carry enough spare parts for everything, but we do have the tools to fix it once we locate a part if it comes to that.
