The Phillips head screwdriver uses a replaceable/reversible bit which I understand could come in handy. If you strip the bit it's easier to replace than the whole unit, but... The one and only time I've been up a mast I was using it to replace the steaming light and naturally before I even had the first screw out the bit came loose and went bouncing all the way down to the deck...
Magnetize the bits with the strongest rare-earth magnet you can find, or put one of the tiny magnets from a magnetic socket in the bottom of your Leatherman socket. Or carry spares...
